Limited Governmental Powers

May 31, 2022 4:42 AM | Jim Hochberg (Administrator)

From Hawaii News Now, May 31, 2022.

Civil rights attorney Jim Hochberg, who has filed a legal challenge to the governor’s emergency powers, said the bill doesn’t go far enough.


His suit argued that Hawaii law only allows the governor’s emergency powers to remain in place for 60 days. He added that the Legislature could have stepped-in to end the emergency period -- but didn’t.

“Well, it was pretty clear from the massive continuing protests that people didn’t agree. But because it was a governor using executive power, they had no voice,” Hochberg said.
