We have curated some of the most commonly asked questions for you.
Who can make a request?
Hawaii's law applies to any "natural person," whether a citizen or noncitizen, resident or nonresident, and to corporations.
What kinds of information can be obtained?
All the government records are to be open to public inspection, copying, duplicating during businesshours - with certain exception. A requester may seek a printed or typed document, tape recording, map, computer printout, computer tape or a similar item. The form in which a record is maintained by an agency does not affect its availability
