This is a BAD IDEA that will raise the cost of living for everyone.

In this year’s General Election on Nov. 6, Hawai‘i voters will be asked to decide on a proposed constitutional amendment that would give the legislature the authority to create one of the largest tax increases in Hawai‘i’s history. The ballot question reads:

“Shall the legislature be authorized to establish, as provided by law, a surcharge on investment real property to be used to support public education?”

This new tax will raise the cost of living for EVERYONE in our state.
