When Civil Beat decided to open a Washington, D.C., bureau, we knew it would be an opportunity to better connect Hawaii residents to the people in Washington making critical decisions on their behalves.
From the nation’s capital, we’ll work to provide the kind of thoughtful, exhaustive, investigative coverage you’ve come to expect from Civil Beat. But we also want to take you along on our day-to-day D.C. adventures.
In this blog you’ll find breaking news, updates on the congressional delegation, photographs and video, live updates from hearings, political analysis, exclusive interviews with key lawmakers and more, all aimed at best serving Hawaii readers.
Our mission is to bring you closer to Washington than Hawaii has ever been, and to answer the kinds of questions that will help us understand, in a national context, who we are and where we’re going.
