Honolulu Star Advertiser – Gov. David Ige to step back from blanket suspension of open meetings law

State attorneys are working on language that would restore at least some portions of the suspended Sunshine Law that requires government meetings to be public.

A coalition of open-government and public-access advocates led by Common Cause Hawaii sharply criticized Ige for imposing the restriction, arguing that suspension of the Sunshine Law wiped away decades of government transparency.
