Chair Representative Karl Rhoads, Vice-Chair Representative Sharon E. Har, and Committee Members:

The League of Women Voters of Hawaii supports HB 1072 requiring the University of Hawaii Board of Regents to file financial interest forms yearly and that these forms be open to the public.

This measure can help improve public confidence in government. We feel that when board members are responsible for decisions on matters in the public interest the public should be able to know if any member has a personal financial or economic stake in the matter. The proposed addition of the members of the UH Board of Regents to those whose disclosure filing is available for public scrutiny is in consonance with the scope and power associated with their responsibilities and authority.

For government to work people must have faith in the integrity of its officials. We urge you to pass HB1072. Thank you for the opportunity to submit testimony.
