Hawaii voters may decide on tax rebates

Hawaii voters may get a chance to decide whether the government should continue to be required to hand out tax rebates when the state runs a surplus.

The House approved the proposed constitutional amendment with only one "no" vote Tuesday.

Hawaii residents frequently get tiny rebates -- $1 in many years -- because of a requirement in the state constitution that excess general fund revenues be returned to taxpayers.

This proposal would ask voters whether money left over in the government's bank account at the end of the year could instead be saved in an emergency or budget reserve fund.

The measure would appear on November's ballot, if it clears a conference committee of House and Senate negotiators.

Suggested constitutional amendments don't require the governor's approval.
