Episode opens with a history and explanation of the United Nations Treaty Report, which speakers find to be incorrectly publicized by local newspapers. Kinilau explains the Native Vote 98 Legislative Report Card, which graded state legislators based upon their positions on issues affecting native Hawaiians, including explanations of crucial bills such as the Autonomy Act (House Bill 2340) and the Gathering Rights Act. Then, the issue of holding a constitutional convention and issues surrounding amendments to the state constitution are discussed, including arguments against the Constitutional Convention and the panel's rebuttals to the opposition.
