Rep. Sayama is a proud fourth generation Japanese-American, born and raised in St. Louis Heights. Graduating from Punahou, Rep. Sayama went to China where he attended the New York University of Shanghai. After gaining a global perspective, Rep. Sayama returned home and found that many of his family, friends, and neighbors moved to the mainland. With a hope to build a Hawaii where local families can thrive, Rep. Sayama d edicated himself to public service.

Having served on his neighborhood board and as Vice-Chairman of the Labor and Tourism Committee, Rep. Sayama understands the importance of listening to his constituents to create sound policies and take action. In his first term, Rep. Sayama spearheaded legislation to address the rampant catalytic converter thefts and introduced legislation to improve afterschool care programs. In the district, Rep. Sayama has organized a COVID vaccination event and served hundreds of residents and has continued to engage teachers and principals on school improvements.

AFFORDABLE HOUSING



To better understand what affordable housing in Kaimukī might look like, Representative Sayama visited Hale Kālele with Vice Speaker Greggor Ilagan. We were impressed with the affordability of units, accommodations, and management of the facility. While Rep. Sayama does not intend to emulate all aspects of Hale Kālele, such as its 20 story height, he hopes to use it as a model to maximize the utility of the Kaimukī property not only for housing and Pre-K classrooms, but also for community needs like public parking.

HB 1860 (2022) Relating to Catalytic Converters

COVID-19 Clinics



With the surge of the Omicron variant, Rep. Sayama partnered with Department of Health, Project Vision and other community organizations to host two COVID-19 clinics where they offered vaccinations, boosters and rapid testing. From the hard work and dilligence of the volunteers and staff, they were able to test and vaccinate hundreds of residents.

Sterling Higa: Those Struggling To Get By Are Hardest Hit by Catalytic Converter Thefts

[Rep.] Sayama says he heard about catalytic converter theft from Alan Nakamura, the owner of Kaimuki Auto Repair. That conversation led Sayama to research catalytic converter theft, which he found was a problem not only in his district, but nationwide.

Last year, Sayama introduced HB 446, which sought to establish a new offense for theft of a catalytic converter. HB 446 also required businesses engaged in the sale or purchase of used motor vehicle parts to keep more detailed records and report attempted sales of undocumented parts to the police.

'It’s an incredibly disruptive crime to a working family,' says Sayama. He’s confident that a bill related to catalytic converter theft will pass this session. 'If not my bill, at least someone else’s.'

Sayama admits that his bill won’t eliminate catalytic converter theft, but it can help to eliminate the local market for catalytic converters. Local buyers act as a medium between thieves and the international buyers of precious metals, says Sayama. Increasing the friction of buying and selling decreases profits, and the added risk of criminal penalty should discourage would-be thieves.

'We’re just trying to make it a lot less attractive.'

Rep. Sayama Introduces Bill To Alleviate Catalytic Converter Thefts



Freshman Hawai'i State Rep. Jackson Sayama and several state lawmakers introduced House Bill 446 that would help alleviate the increasing thefts of catalytic converters from vehicles. The bill passed first reading in the House and has been assigned to committees. Catalytic converters contain precious metals that thieves steal and then sell as the price of metal skyrockets, according to police.

The bill calls for new requirements on the buyer and seller of catalytic converters and increases fines for violators. Businesses that buy used parts and metals would be required to refuse the purchase of used motor vehicle parts or accessories and report the attempted sale to police if a seller does not provide appropriate information at the time of the attempted sale.

The bill would help protect families dependent on their vehicles to go to work and take their children to school, said Sayama (D-20, St. Louis Heights, Palolo, Maunalani Heights, Wilhelmina Rise, Kaimuki).

"Many families are already struggling with the pandemic and don't have an extra $1,000 to $2,000 to replace their stolen catalytic converter," Sayama said. "Just as the legislature cracked down on the theft of copper in 2013, we must place safeguards to prevent the illegal trade and theft of catalytic converters now."
