Hawaii's climate change education resolution fails to pass the Senate

When Hawaii's legislature adjourned sine die on May 5, 2022, House Concurrent Resolution 134 died in a Senate committee. Observing that "Hawaii faces an uncertain future as the global climate crisis intensifies and puts the health of Hawaii's people, environment, and economy at risk," the resolution would, if adopted, have requested the state department of education "to ensure that career and technical education standards focus on place-based responsiveness to climate change and preparing students to engage in a growing green economy." The identical House Resolution 134 passed the House of Representatives on April 7, 2022.
