The chairwoman of the Finance Committee in the Hawaii House of Representatives will be raising campaign cash Thursday evening.

Sylvia Luke’s fundraiser is set for 5:30 p.m. at 800 S. Beretania Street, Suite 210. The suggested contributions range from $100 to $250.

Thursday is the 18th day of the 60-day Hawaii State Legislature, the day before the “first lateral” deadline for bills.

It is not illegal for legislators to seek political cash while also considering legislation that may be of interest to certain contributors.
