Hawaii lawmakers will be doing some heavy lifting this week as they meet to tackle the trickiest bills.
Both chambers have passed hundreds of measures, but the finer details of many proposals will be worked out in conference committees.
One of the biggest projects will be sorting out the state budget. After the state revised its revenue projections, the Senate made cuts to what the governor and House proposed.
They may chop salaries at University of Hawaii, funding for the Hawaii Invasive Species Council and nearly $5 million for elder care programs.
There also will be hearings on resolutions that aim to shore up the health and safety of children and the elderly.
The Legislature is planning a short week and will take the day off to observe Good Friday.
