OIP’s education efforts paying off—another meeting postponed to comply with Sunshine Law

by Larry Geller

This is a snip from an email from the DLNR (Department of Land and Natural Resources) sent yesterday:

Attached please find the CANCELLED agenda for the Public Land Development Corporation meeting that was to be held on Wednesday, October 5, 2011.  The agenda was not posted on the State Calendar as required under Hawaii Sunshine Laws and therefore, the meeting will be rescheduled.

One by one, it appears that state boards and commissions are hearing about the Sunshine Law and adjusting their practices to comply.

While legislation can accomplish much, the OIP’s education efforts (and a few complaints, to OIP maybe) may be a faster, more effective path to compliance.

Good job DLNR, good job OIP.
