Yesterday, a Hawaii Senate committee voted to approve a resolution calling for a statue of former President Obama to be erected in his home state.
It was a unanimous vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee for a resolution that requested that the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts commission the statue.
The resolution talked about Obama's many achievements such as how the U.S. prospered under Obama’s presidency, saying that 16 million Americans were able to obtain health care through the Affordable Care Act. It went on to say that Obama was only the African-American to hold a U.S. Senate seat after he was elected from Illinois.
No word on how the statue will be funded or who the artist will be yet, but supporters of Obama are happy to see this happening.
