HONOLULU -

The Hawaii Legislature is meeting to vote on bills for the last time this year.
    
Lawmakers in both the House and the Senate are voting Thursday on the handful of bills that remain.
    
Both chambers are deciding on proposals to set aside money to fund the state's settlements with unions.
    
Senators are also deciding on a bill to stop people from lying down disruptively at bus stops and a measure to require everyone to wear seatbelts on highways.
    
The Legislature passed the bulk of its final bills earlier this week, including the state budget and Gov. Neil Abercrombie's initiatives regarding energy and education.
    
Because Hawaii has a part-time Legislature, lawmakers don't plan to meet to vote on bills again until next year.
