Legal Notices


The University of Hawaii, pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes Chapter 91, subsection 91-3(f), hereby gives thirty days’ public notice that it intends to repeal Title 20, Chapter 17 of the Hawaii Administrative Rules entitled “Collection of Voluntary Contributions” (for convenience referred to as “Chapter 20-17”). The proposed effective date of the repeal shall be June 14, 2017, or as soon thereafter as certified copies of the repeal have been filed with the Office of the Lieutenant Governor.

Chapter 20-17 provides the criteria for the University to enter into a contract with an organization the majority of whose membership are students of the University to collect voluntary contributions for the use of the program of that organization. Chapter 20-17 is not required by law and has, since its existence, never been used for any student organization. This is because there are currently existing policies governing student organizations. Rules pertaining to student organizations are more appropriately left to the University via the establishment of board policies and executive policies and procedures. Chapter 20-17, therefore, is not necessary for the administration of student organizations within the University and will be repealed in its entirety.

The full text of the chapter to be repealed is available on the University of Hawaii website at
. The full text may also be viewed until May 31, 2017, between the hours of 9:00am – noon and 1:00pm – 4:00pm at the UH System Government Relations Office located at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, 2444 Dole Street, Bachman Hall 109J, Honolulu, Hawaii 96822, and at regional public libraries.

Any interested person may petition the University Board of Regents regarding the proposed repeal of Chapter 20-17 by submitting a petition to the Board pursuant to Section 91-6, Hawaii Revised Statutes, at 2444 Dole Street, Bachman 209, Honolulu, Hawaii 96822, no later than May 31, 2017.
