S Memo 20-5
June 1, 2020
Community Roundtable Discussions about
Helicopter Tour Operations on Island of Hawaii

OIP concluded that the state Department of Transportation did not violate the Sunshine Law by failing to provide public notice of a meeting of the State of Hawaii Helicopter Noise Roundtable because the Roundtable had not been established by the constitution, statute, rule, executive order or other legal authority, and thus, did not meet the definition of a “board” subject to the Sunshine Law.
