Next, the Senate Ways and Means (WAM) committee and House Finance (FIN) committee will hold informational briefings with the executive departments. Things kick off with WAM & FIN joint briefings on Tuesday, January 4 — they’ll be delving into the Economic Outlook and the Administration Financial Plan. While individual notices will be issued for the events, WAM has already issued a summary of their schedule: https://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/session2022/hearingnotices/HEARING_WAM_2022_SUMMARY_INFO_.HTM
