People on both sides of the same-sex marriage debate are a bit angry and confused.
"And people should be heard. Everyone has a voice and deserves to be heard," said Frank Cabacungan, who wants to testify.
But some are complaining, they're not being heard.
House lawmakers decided not to let people testify for others who signed up, but couldn't be there. Some groups were encouraging people to do that.
"Yes, I strongly encourage and have been receiving many, many emails," said Garret Hashimoto, president of the Hawaii Christian Coalition.
"The whole point of oral testimony is for legislators to ask the individual testifier questions. If you're testifying on behalf of somebody ask, it's difficult to ask that person questions," said Rep. Sylvia Luke (D) House Finance Chair.
Rep. Luke said those who testified for others, such as U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz's wife speaking on behalf of him, gave notice well ahead of time. To ensure the right person is testifying, they are now checking IDs twice outside the auditorium and then again inside -- especially after last week's incident.
"We do know that somebody did take a list from the reception desk and they were using that to encourage other people to give misinformation on who they are," Rep. Luke said.
Rep. Marcus Oshiro believes people should be allow to stand in for others. He put out his own information table outside the auditorium and took names of testifiers who were rejected.
"I'm just going to preserve the record as best as possible that maybe at some point in the proceedings they might change their minds and I'll have the ability to maybe call these people back," said Rep. Oshiro (D) Wahiawa, Whitmore Village.
Lawmakers in the hearing are hoping to wrap up testimony and vote on it Monday night. If that happens, then it could go to the floor for a second reading on Tuesday.
If it's passed with amendments, third reading would be held on Thursday. If it's passed as is, third reading would be on Wednesday.
Committee members could also reject the bill altogether.
