Chair Oshiro, Vice Chair Lee, and Committee Members:
The League of Women Voters of Hawaii strongly supports Section 4 of HB1756 HD1. This section creates strong standards for disclosure by non-candidate committees in election campaigns. These standards would allow the public to understand the source and intent of messages they hear or read during a campaign. An informed public is essential to successful democratic government.
The League takes no position on the other sections of HB1756 HD1.
Thank you for the opportunity to testify.
