According to an article by Malia Zimmerman in Hawaii Reporter, President Bush is lobbying in support of the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act of 2005 (aka the Akaka Bill), which would give Native Hawaiians the rights of self-government as indigenous people that American Indians now enjoy:

Hawaii’s Republican Governor Linda Lingle is fighting for the passage of the bill along with Hawaii’s Democrat Congressional delegation. Lingle has rallied the support of the president behind the bill, and behind the scenes President Bush is said to be lobbying Republican Senators to pass the measure. In addition, the president’s administration reportedly has asked the U.S. Justice Department to downplay its concerns over the constitutionality of the bill.

Most Hawaiians oppose the bill, which townhall.com’s Tim Chapman aptly calls “the worst bill you have never heard of.”
