Offices for state representatives will be closed through April 30 to comply with Gov. David Ige’s stay at home order, according to a memo from House Speaker Scott Saiki.

Saiki’s office, the clerk’s office, the House majority office and House Sergeant-at-Arms will be open weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. with limited staff.

Offices were closed in March after Sen. Clarence Nishihara tested positive for COVID-19.

Lawmakers and their staffs are still working from home, according to Saiki’s memo. Session staff will also still be employed through May 7, the original date for the end of session.

The Legislature recessed indefinitely March 16.

Before you go . . .

During a crisis like this, it’s more important than ever to dig beyond the news, to figure out what government policies mean for ordinary citizens and how those policies were put together.

For the first time, Civil Beat has become a seven-days-per-week news operation, publishing new stories and a new edition each Saturday and Sunday as well as weekdays.

This is perhaps the biggest, most consequential story our reporters will ever cover. And at no other time in Civil Beat’s history have we relied on your support more. Please consider supporting Civil Beat by making a tax-deductible gift.
