No Sunshine in Hawaii!?

The otherwise exceptionally good administration of Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle has introduced a bill to exempt a swath of government operations from the state’s Sunshine Law. That would be a bad idea anywhere, but in Hawaii, especially so, as crack reporter Malia Zimmerman points out, “considering the troubled history Hawaii has had with corruption in government and secrecy, and Lingle’s pledge to make government more accountable and restore trust in government.”
