Steven Tyler will attend Hawaii's senate judiciary committee meeting today for a bill named after him.

His publicist says Tyler has submitted written testimony supporting the Steven Tyler Act, which would give celebrities the power to sue people who photograph them in their private lives in an offensive way.

State Senator Kalani English says he introduced the bill at Tyler's request. Tyler owns a home in Maui.
