  This week, a Honolulu City Council committee approved a bill to expand the ordinance banning sitting and lying on public sidewalks. If the entire council agrees, the sit-lie ban could soon come to parts of Iwilei and Kalihi. Several businesses located in the Kalihi area are calling for the ban to be expanded, but opponents have said the measure criminalizes homeless people and unwillingly forces them into shelters. Today's panel includes the President of a longtime Kalihi retail business, a homeless advocate and a representative of ACLU Hawaii.

Next Tuesday is Equal Pay Day, the point in the year to which women have to work to equal what their male counterparts earned as of December 31st. With decades of pay inequality still haunting working women and families, is the annual focus really helping to bridge the gender gap or is it just a moment blip on the calendar? From the days of the Equal Pay Act in 1963 and including the 2009 Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, has federal legislation made a substantive difference in increasing pay parity? Today, our panel takes up Equal Pay Day.

  Taxation in our state always elicits strong reactions from residents and lawmakers, but what makes sense now with downward revisions in revenue and in likely a few years, a negative change in the economy? How do we plan to meet the state's needs with fairness to the ones who'll foot the bill? With Hawaii’s cost of living and many families and low-income individuals living paycheck to paycheck can policies be restructured to provide fairness to all. Today on Town Square, debt and taxes.
