Hawaii's Economic Rundown
As the state's economy continues to be thrown into disarray, we check in with Hawaii Economist Paul Brewbaker of TZ Economists to get a sense of how the islands will fair in the coming weeks.
Federal Bailout Bill
Lots of questions remain on the roll-out of the federal bailout bill passed by Congress and signed into law by the president Friday. We spoke to Rep. Ed Case just after its passage. He unpacks what he calls the disaster relief program and also talked about the military’s readiness to deal with the coronavirus. Links to Rep. Case's website can be found here.
Island Shipping Concerns
Earlier this month we heard assurances from the Harbor Users group that shipping is not being disrupted. Today we hear from Hawaii Energy - formerly Chevron - about the situation with our fuel reserves. Albert Chee is the Vice President of Communications for the company. He tells us people shouldn't worry, and that there is ample supply.
