Public confidence in government rests largely on real and perceived conflicts of interests and ethical standards. Common Cause Hawaii believes in upholding and strengthening Hawaii's Ethics Laws. We support:
- Reversing legislators' exemption of a portion of the state ethics code that specifies that legislators cannot use their elected title for personal gain.
- Strengthening and more frequent reporting for lobbyists and lawmakers
- Increasing government accountability and efficiency by supporting a Council-Manager system on Maui.
