Council Bills and Resolutions
This site contains the files of publicly circulated bills and resolutions pending before City Council.
Not included are bills and resolutions which have received final approval or have been filed by the Council. Pursuant to ROH Sec. 1-2.4 and -2.5, bills and those resolutions requiring three readings are automatically filed (and are therefore removed from this database) if they fail to pass third reading within two years of introduction; all other resolutions are automatically filed if they fail to be adopted within one year of introduction.
See the Revised Ordinances of Honolulu for bills that are approved to amend the revised ordinances.
See Honolulu City Council Policy Resolutions for resolutions that are approved to establish City policy.
New bills and resolutions are logged within five days of introduction or public release. Status information is logged within four days of Council action. Files are then converted to web format for use here as an on-line research tool. No warranties are made regarding the accuracy or completeness. Printed copies of all measures are available from the Office of the City Clerk, Council Information and Records Office. Information on older bills and resolutions is also available on microfilm at the Office of the City Clerk.
