Online. In an effort to clear up Oahu's walk ways--The city's new sidewalk nuisance law goes into effect TODAY. The city is now allowed to immediatly remove tents and other items from sidewalks. The ordinance also charges a 200-dollar fee if you want your property back within 30 days. Some argue the law violates inalienable rights, others believe it will encourage the homeless to seek shelters. Island security guards WITHOUT a license-- will not be able to go to work today. A new law passed three years ago, requiring security guards to have a high school diploma or G-E-D, take an 8 hour course, and have four hours on the job training. The state says security guards and their firms could face sanctions if not in compliance. And get ready to pay MORE for your water and sewer bill. Oahu residents will pay 30 cents more for every one-thousand gallons used -- PLUS an increase in base rates for both sewer and water. There will be rate hikes each summer through 2016. Residents on Maui and Kauai will ALSO see their water bills go up. Governor Neil Abercrombie plans to sign TWO bills TODAY-- designed to prevent human trafficking. One bill puts children who are victims of sex and labor trafficking -- within the SCOPE of the Child Protective Act. Another bill requires certain employers to display posters that provide information related to human trafficking. They'll be required in massage parlors, establishments that provide nude dancers, and some businesses with liquor licenses. And Starting today, the Freeway Service Patrol is expanding its coverage. FSP will be adding 3 more miles along the H-1 Freeway. Coverage will now span from Fort Weaver Road to Ainakoa Avenue in Waialae. Patrol trucks will also be equipped with a new tool called "Push Bumpers" -- used to nudge a stalled vehicle to safety without damaging the car. Full schedule tours make a comeback TODAY -- at the U-S-S Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument will return to offering FREE tours every 15 minutes from 8-A-M to 3-P-M DAILY.
