Hawaii Considers Campaign Finance and Ethics Reforms

 In Blog, Updates

The Hawaii Commission to Improve Standards of Conduct is recommending that Hawaii lawmakers stop accepting campaign money during the legislative session. A bill to do that along with nine other measures focused on reforming campaign finance laws will head to lawmakers for consideration during the 2023 session.


Among the other items being considered is a campaign finance measure aimed at banning government contractors from making campaign contributions while they are actively working on a contract. Hawaii’s current law only applies that ban to the contracted company, not to its employees. The commission’s proposal would extend the ban to owners and officers of companies as well as their immediate family members.


The Commission is expected to take up additional proposals related to ethics rules for lawmakers and lobbyists.
