PUC Financial Reports
Financial reports filed with the State Public Utilities Commission (PUC) by motor carriers and public utilities must be made public. Section 271-11, Hawaii Revised Statutes, provides that the statistics, tables, and figures in the annual or other reports of motor carriers filed with the PUC shall be preserved as public records. Additionally, because of the PUC’s long-standing practice of disclosing financial reports filed by public utilities, the OIP found that such reports were not protected by any of the UIPA’s exceptions.
