(2) Disclosure of a potential licensee's proprietary information or business strategy; or

(3) The loss of a convention center booking.

(b) Subsection (a) shall not apply to disclosure to the legislature.

(c) As used in this section, "booking business records" means the company name, address, and contact; event program contents; event schedules; exhibitor lists; confidential business information; and description of the Hawaii convention center's offer, rent, discounts, and subsidies."

SECTION 3. New statutory material is underscored.

SECTION 4. This Act shall take effect upon its approval.
