On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend reports from the Big Island of Hawaii, where a proposed bill has ignited renewed discussion about the impact of the state's largest aquarium fishery, which catches hundreds of thousands of gem-like saltwater fish each year for shipment to collectors around the world. Supporters say the industry is sustainable and regulated, and the increased number of collectors, fish taken out and fish still living on the reef are a sign that management is working. But environmental activists say the practice is destructive, depletes populations of popular fish species and fish die by the thousands from reef to retailer. NewsHour's Mike Taibbi reports.

Since recreational marijuana became legally available in Colorado last year, officials now say more pot is illegally coming through the border of states like Nebraska and Oklahoma, draining state resources as the number of arrests keeps growing.

And while some prepare to leave their homes out of fear, Jewish leaders grapple with the source of the resurgent hatred. Martin Himel reports.

On Sunday, a bill passed in December now allows banks to offer prize-linked saving programs, which function as a lottery that gives savers a chance at a large prize and a savings, since the deposit goes into an account that collects interest. Supporters of this approach say it appeals to low- and moderate-income households, but will they actually boost Americans' savings rates? Karla Murthy reports on NewsHour Weekend Sunday.
