HONOLULU (KITV4) -- Gov. David Ige has just over six months left in office. December 5 is his last day as governor. One of his biggest tasks left is to make a decision on the bills that were passed by the Legislature.
One of those bills is House Bill 1567 -- the bail reform bill. The suspects in smash and grab burglaries and many other Class C felonies, misdemeanors, and petty misdemeanors would be released without having to post bail if that bill becomes law. But supporters of the bill say it will reduce overcrowding in Hawaii's jails.
