State Representative Faye P. Hanohano, a Democrat from Puna, is the sole sponsor of a bill which seeks to make Hawaii the 10th state to legalize such unions.
House Bill 1109 states its purpose as “to recognize marriages between persons of the same sex in the State of Hawaii. It is the intent of the legislation to extend to same-sex couples the right to marry and to receive all the same rights, benefits, protections, and responsibilities of marriage as opposite-sex couples receive under the laws of this State.”
