HAWAII'S "OPEN MEETINGS" LAW:
The Federal Workforce Investment Act requires boards across the
United States to comply with their state's open meetings laws
in order to fulfill Federal open meeting requirements.
P.L. 105-220 Section 117(e)
In accordance with the State of Hawaii's Open Meetings Law,
the Oahu Workforce Investment Board files notice of board meetings/agendas
with the State's Lt. Governor's Office as well as the Honolulu City Clerk's Office.
These two Offices are the only statutorily recognized locations where
all official government boards' meetings agendas on Oahu
are legally filed/noticed.
The information which follows is from the
State Office of Information Practices (OIP) website & reproduced here for your convenience:
"The Sunshine Law is
and county boards must conduct their official business."
The Sunshine Law is codified at part I of chapter 92, Hawaii Revised Statutes. See link for unofficial copy of the law: http://hawaii.gov/oip/sunshinelaw.html
"Sunshine Law Guide:
"OIP has prepared a guide to the Sunshine Law, which may be downloaded in pdf or word format below.
This guide is intended to be a reference tool for board members and members of the public in understanding
"We have attempted to present the law in "plain English," through the types of questions that are most frequently asked. We have also included a flowchart regarding executive meetings and a checklist for notices that are intended to provide additional tools to aid your understanding and compliance with the Sunshine Law.
