A TWO POINT TWO PERCENT UNEMPLOYMENT RATE for the State of Hawai‘i was announced by Gov. David Ige on Thursday: "It is great news that October’s unemployment rate of 2.2 percent is the lowest on record. This is partly a reflection of robust visitor numbers thanks to increased flights to the islands. We want to keep the momentum going as we develop an innovation economy -- creating at least 80,000 new high tech, innovation, higher wage jobs by 2030. We will continue to combine local entrepreneurship with cutting edge technology and innovative thinking to develop talent, create jobs and keep our children in Hawai‘i," promised the governor.

 $25 MILLION FOR PŌHAKULOA TRAINING AREA has been funded, according to Sen. Mazie Hirono, who is a Ranking Member of the Senate Armed Services Seapower Subcommittee. She announced on Thursday that she successfully secured provisions that "will strengthen Hawai‘i’s security and economy in the Fiscal Year 2018 National Defense Authorization Act that passed the Senate today." Hirono also served as a member of the NDAA Conference Committee, which reconciled the different versions of the bill passed by the House and Senate. The NDAA is a bill that lays out the resource levels and defense policy for the year.
      “This year’s National Defense Authorization Act reflects the central role Hawai‘i plays in supporting and advancing our country’s strategic interests in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region,” said Hirono. “From establishing the Asia Pacific Security Initiative, to fighting back against headquarters cuts at Pacific Command, and enhancing our nation’s missile defense capabilities, this legislation strengthens our national security and benefits those who serve in Hawai‘i and across the country.”
     The bill goes to Pres. Donald Trump for his signature or veto.

     In addition to the $25 million for Pōhakuloa, the bill includes: $90 million for Fort Shafter’s Command and Control Facility; $73.2 million for the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam’s Sewer Lift Station; $65.9 million for the Navy’s Command Facility; $26.5 million for Marine Corps Base Hawai‘i’s Mokapu Gate; $19 million for the Navy’s MV-22 Landing Pad; $6 million for Energy Resiliency Projects at Marine Corps Base Hawai‘i; $5.5 million for Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam’s Consolidated Training Facility and $5 million for Wahiawa’s Kunia Tunnel Entrance.
     The bill's provisions for Hawai‘i also include:
     Enhancing Protection of the Indo-Asia-Pacific Region: Hirono added in a provision that requires the Secretary of Defense, in consultation with regional commanders, to submit to Congress a plan that includes the consideration of increased visible presence of key U.S. military assets.
     Strengthening Energy Resiliency: Hirono included several provisions to protect energy grids from cyber-attacks, authorize the Department of Defense to increase energy resiliency and conservation projects, and encourage the Department of Defense to work with the private sector to finance renewable energy projects on military installations.
     Fighting Back Against PACOM Headquarters Cuts: Hirono included a provision requiring the Department of Defense to review data on past growth of specific headquarters staffs as well as current and projected mission requirements before assessing staff cuts. She said, it "will ensure that any personnel reductions deemed necessary by the Secretary do not disproportionately impact commands like PACOM, protecting jobs in Hawai‘i and ensuring that PACOM has the personnel necessary to cover the largest area of responsibility of any of the Department’s combatant commands."
      Strengthening U.S.-Palau Compact: Hirono worked to include an agreement that keeps the U.S. commitment to Palau. The President’s budget includes $123.9 million for the United States’ remaining funding commitment to the U.S.-Palau Compact.
Hirono says that the new National Defense Authorization Act will
secure military spending and jobs in Hawai‘i, with $25 million
for Hawai‘i Island's Pōhakuloa Training Area.

     Assessing China’s Influence: Hirono included a provision for an independent study on how China’s expanded influence through economic and military investments across the Indo-Asia-Pacific impacts regional security and U.S. policy for mitigating any harmful effects resulting from China’s actions.
     Improving Missile Defense Capabilities: Hirono worked with Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) to include a provision to improve the capabilities of the missile defense system.
      Establishing Asia Pacific Stability Initiative: Hirono and Sen. John McCain included a provision authorizing an Asia Pacific Stability Initiative to help warfighting capability and to strengthen partnerships with allies in the region.
      Funding Anti-Corrosion Efforts: Corrosion costs the DoD about $20 billion per year. Hirono supported increased funding for corrosion control and prevention. She said it is "important to Hawai‘i as its unique environment often leads to significant corrosion of military assets such as helicopters and other aircraft." She said she fought off a provision to eliminate the DoD’s Office of Corrosion Policy and Prevention. She also included a provision directing a GAO review of the Pentagon’s corrosion control and prevention efforts.

     Strengthening Research Agreements with Universities: Hirono included provisions for research and development agreements between the Department of Defense and universities. It provides the Secretary of Defense authority to establish mechanisms for expedited access to technical talent and expertise at academic institutions to support critical missions such as cybersecurity, unmanned systems, and advanced materials among others.
     Promoting Military Family Stability: Hirono included several provisions to help military families undergoing permanent change of stations within the U.S., including more flexibility with staying in government quarters and the creation of a pilot program on public-private partnerships for telework facilities on overseas military installations to improve hiring of military spouses.
      Streamlining of Acquisition Process: Hirono worked with the Committee to include provisions to streamline the acquisition process, including support for innovation at Department of Defense laboratories and a training program to establish in-resident target training on agile acquisition.
      Expanding Major Range and Test Facility Bases: Hirono supported efforts to create incentives for the Department of Defense workforce at laboratories and test ranges and to encourage the Department of Defense to use existing authority and $150 million in funding for infrastructure improvements at major range and test facility bases.

      Strengthening Cybersecurity Education and Training Programs: Hirono included provisions allowing easier access to universities for engineering or operational needs for cybersecurity. She included funding for Maui’s high performance computing modernization program as well as increased funding for universities and industry research centers to encourage the development of new technology and defense systems.

AT A RALLY FOR A CLEAN DREAM ACT on Capitol Hill Wednesday, Sen. Mazie Hirono joined Pacific Islander and other imigrants. She said, "We are all truly in this together and I am standing here with you. I would like nothing better than for a clean dream act to pass. That is going to take a lot of work, as you well know. Half the battle is showing up. You have to keep showing up. Do not lose hope." She tweeted: "#AAPIs4Dream are in the Capitol today because when we do not stand up for passing the #DreamActNow, we are not standing up for our country's values."
      The DREAM Act, allows young adults who were brought into the country illegally as children to stay, if meeting certain requirements. Hirono points out that many are in college and are working, paying taxes; the U.S. is the only home they know.
