State lawmakers adjourned the 2017 session on Thursday after reviewing hundreds of bills on issues ranging from rail to homelessness.
Here is the status of some of the most significant measures. Bills that have been passed have been sent to Gov. David Ige for his signature or veto.
The governor can also allow bills to become law without his signature. Lawmakers can override the governors veto with a two-thirds vote in both the House and the Senate.
