Tyler Act Stalls in Hawaii

The Steven Tyler Act, a bill to protect the privacy of celebrities, is stalled in the Hawaiian legislature.

The bill passed the state Senate earlier this month following testimony from the Aerosmith frontman, but now it’s missing deadlines in the state House. Representative Angus McKelvey of Maui, chairman of the consumer protection committee, says he won’t hold a hearing for the bill. McKelvey tells the Associated Press, “There is zero support for that legislation in the House of Representatives. To say there is absolutely zero support would be an understatement.”

The leaders of the committees on consumer protection, judiciary and finance could get around the deadlines if all three agree to put in a joint request to House Speaker Joseph Souki. But McKelvey says, “There is a better chance of people flapping their arms and flying from Lanai to Maui.”
