    Analysis: Hawaii missed out on federal reimbursements

    HONOLULU (AP) — Federal data indicates Hawaii has potentially missed out on tens of millions of dollars in federal reimbursements from claims related to teaching Medicaid-insured special education students. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that a review of federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services data shows the state received nearly $260,000 for school-based Medicaid health services in 2016, a fraction of what most states get. On average, states received $48 million in 2016, the latest year with state-by-state statistics available. State Rep. Sylvia Luke, who heads the House Finance Committee, says she believes Hawaii has been missing out on about $50 million to $100 million annually

    Hawaii gives up Trump administration travel ban legal fight

    HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii is dropping its legal fight against President Donald Trump's travel ban on citizens from several mostly Muslim countries after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the policy. The state attorney general's office voluntarily dismissed the case Monday. Lt. Gov. Doug Chin sued to stop the travel ban from taking effect when he was attorney general last year. Current Attorney General Russell Suzuki says while the state is disappointed in the Supreme Court's decision, Hawaii's fight pushed the administration to scale back its efforts. Suzuki spokeswoman Dana Viola says the department weighed options, evaluated litigation rights and decided dropping the case was in the state's best interest.
