Commission gives up attempt to shorten notice requirement


The state Reapportionment Commission has scheduled a meeting on May 24 to review the process of creating new voting districts.

The meeting starts at 3 p.m. at Room 329 at the state Capitol.

Commissioners today decided to restore a six-days notice of meetings.

Commissioners, noting a short deadline to accomplish tasks, imposed a three-days meeting notice – an action opposed by public interest groups, including Common Cause, .

Commissioners said upon further review, the state Attorney General’s Office advised that it was unclear whether the commission was exempt from the Hawaii Sunshine Law of six-days notice.
