The latest challenge to Calvin Say’s residency status is over.
On Friday, the Hawaii House of Representatives voted unanimously to adopt an investigative report that found no “compelling evidence” that Say did not meet “the requisite qualifications” to represent District 20.
Six residents of the district, which represents St. Louis Heights, Palolo, Maunalani Heights, Wilhelmina Rise and Kaimuki, argued that the speaker emeritus actually resides elsewhere.

Late last month, a special House committee unanimously found Say was qualified to continue representing District 20 “as he has for the past three-plus decades.”
