In fact, JoAnn Maruoka, the Legislative Committee Member for the League of Women Voters of Hawaii, testified to the same committee and on the same day as the Attorney General's office on the bill, but took a radically different view. According to Maruoka, HB 2175 is a travesty.
"While we understand the need for and certainly encourage participation by citizens in such task forces and working groups, there is no sound reason for such an exemption," Maruoka said. "We are gravely concerned about the inherent risks of actual or at the least the perception of conflict of interest, including undue influence and use of public office for personal gain. In fact, from a citizen's perspective, this proposed exemption flies in the face of good sense and simply does not pass the smell test. It would not only set a bad tone, it could well start things down a slippery slope. In these times of badly-eroded public trust in government, it does not make sense to build in loopholes that are counter to openness and transparency."
And just to make sure the good legislators on the committee understood her point, Maruoka made it as pointed as possible.
"The purpose in having a Code of Ethics is to prevent corruption in government," Maruoka, testified.
