The state Office of Information Practices (OIP) is pleased to announce that it has posted the entire four-volume set of the Report of the Governor’s Committee on Public Records and Privacy (December 1987) on its new Legislation page. This Report was the basis for the adoption of Hawaii’s Uniform Information Practices Act (UIPA), Chapter 92F, Hawaii Revised Statutes, and it sheds light on the legislative intent in adopting the statutory provisions for public access to government records. Because it is finally in digital format, this historic Report is more readily accessible to the public and you can search it by key words using the Ctrl-F function.
