Senator Daniel K. Inouye – Press Releases

Working for Hawaii

Striving for a strong Hawaii means many things.  At its foundation is a stable and sustainable economy with good paying jobs that support working families.  We must have a solid education system so our children and grandchildren can achieve to their full potential, becoming contributing members of the community and leading the next generation forward.

We must invest in an accessible, affordable and equitable health care system, in renewable energy technologies, in high technology and broadband connectivity, while never forsaking our beautiful environment which makes Hawaii, Hawaii.

Addressing the problems of today with an eye to the future and a commitment to make life better for those who will come after us is my promise to you as I “work for Hawaii”.

I am pleased to provide a listing of my current press releases.  Please contact me if you have need of other resources from my office.
