S Memo 12-2
July 20, 2011
Application of Sunshine Law to
Hawaii Forest Stewardship Advisory Committee
Requester sought an advisory opinion on whether the Hawaii Forest Stewardship Advisory Committee (Committee) is subject to the Sunshine Law.
Even though there are federal laws that were the impetus for the Committee, OIP found that because the Committee was created by state rule, and meets the Sunshine Law’s other requirements for a board, the Committee is subject to the Sunshine Law.
