"We will be discussing the committee report which outlines our findings and recommendations after hearing more than thirteen hours of testimony from university officials, UH Board of Regents, Jim Donovan, attorneys and all others who came before the committee," said State Sen. Donna Mercado Kim, chair of the Senate Special Committee on Accountability.  "We hope the university will take the recommendations that we will make into serious consideration in order to move forward in restoring the public's trust and support."

One proposal senators are expected to announce will call for a special master to be appointed to make sure that UH's procedural and policy changes promised in the aftermath of the Stevie Wonder blunder actually happen, sources said.

The Senate Special Committee on Accountability held two hearings, on Sept. 24 and Oct. 2, which senators said came in response to public concern over management decisions at UH in the wake of the failed Stevie Wonder concert fundraiser.

No public testimony will be accepted at Monday's informational briefing.
