"For the past few years as the economy took a dive both nationally and here in Hawaii, state and local governments have been struggling to address budget shortfalls. In some cases, administrators and policymakers have slashed and burned their spending plans while others have adopted across-the-board tax rate increases or, in the case of Hawaii, subtly targeted those tax increases at very select segments of the population. In fact, taxpayers are quickly reaching that point where enough is enough and lawmakers and administrators are sensing the political discontent rising."
