Systems Office

Systems Office provides technical support for the computer based operations of the Bureau and the Legislature, and maintains a legislative information system providing the history and status of bills and resolutions.

Legislative Data

The Systems Office maintains a computer system providing information on all measures introduced in the Legislature since 1983. The information includes a description, the introducer, committee referrals and committee report numbers, current status, roll call votes, and the sections of the Hawaii Revised Statutes affected by the bill. This information can be compiled in a variety of ways to tailor each search to individual needs. For example, the Systems Office can provide a list of bills a legislator introduced on a specific subject, or bills introduced that passed or did not pass the legislature. Systems Office staff will provide this information to a legislator in a printout or over the telephone.
