14 resign from state boards over new law

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) At least 14 people have resigned from state boards and commissions because of a new financial disclosure bill, including more than quarter of the members of the University of Hawaii Board of Regents.

The Honolulu Star Advertiser reports four members of the 15-member Board of Regents have resigned in the last month over the bill, which Gov. Neil Abercrombie said he would let become law Tuesday without his signature.

The bill would make annual financial disclosure statements of people serving on more than a dozen state boards and commissions publicly available.

Besides the four regents, other resignations have come from five people on the nine-member state Land Use Commission. The governor's office on Monday received five additional resignation letters covering other boards.
