HONOLULU -

Senator Brian Schatz believes it’s time the federal government take over the responsibility of determining whether there is an incoming missile, rather than the state.

In Hawaii’s case, that would mean the Pacific Command make the determination.  The alert would then come directly from the presidential alert system.

Although it’s in the early stages, he has been working with other state officials in efforts to enact it into law.
