Tampa, Florida – Hawai‘i State Senator Lorraine R. Inouye (District 4 – Hilo, Hāmākua, Kohala, Waimea, Waikōloa, Kona) was recently reappointed as Co-chair of the National Asian Pacific American Caucus of State Legislators (NAPACSL) Economic Development and Labor Committee earlier this week at its annual conference in Tampa, Florida. The National Asian Pacific American Caucus of State Legislators (NAPACSL) is comprised of 168 state legislators from 33 states across the country and is a collective effort to bring in Asian American and Pacific Islander perspectives on policies that affect their communities.
“I am incredibly grateful to have been reappointed as the co-chair of the NAPACSL Economic Development and Labor Committee and I want to thank everyone who has helped me throughout my career in public service,” said Senator Lorraine Inouye. “This will be a great opportunity for my continuity to being a voice for the people of Hawai‘i, to be heard on the national stage regarding labor and economic issues as we transition to a new phase of the economic recovery. Being in public service for over four decades, I understand the struggles of everyday workers and I have always fought and will continue to fight for the people whose hard work drives our economy.”
