  1. Whew! Now that this critical piece of legislation is taken care of, we can now focus on the little things...like the budget deficit and reducing taxes. LOL just kidding. I mean finding new things to tax.

  2. Designating the Monk Seal as the State Mammal and the Hoary Bat as the State Land Mammal are important steps in protecting these species. To my knowledge a state mammal has never gone extinct and the designations helps these species because Hawaii State officials would not want Hawaii to go down as having the first state mammal to go extinct...but I do understand concerns people would have about allocating tax money to this in a tight economy.
