The Senate voted to put the question to voters, which would to establish a surcharge on residential investment property and visitor accommodations to increase funding for public education. Guests today are Corey Rosenlee of the HSTA, the public school teachers’ union, Tom Yamachika, President of the Tax Foundation of Hawaii, and John Harris, President-Elect of the Hawaii Association of Realtors.
