HONOLULU (AP) - The Hawaii Attorney General's office says a legislative grant to a private Roman Catholic school is unconstitutional.
The governor's office is reviewing a $1.5 million grant to Damien Memorial School.
State lawmakers approved the grant-in-aid in the state budget.
Senate President Donna Mercado Kim last month asked the attorney general's office for an opinion on the grant.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports a memo from deputy attorney general Randall S. Nishiyama to Kim says the grant violates a section of the constitution that prohibits public funds for a sectarian or nonsectarian private school.
Damien Memorial President Bernard Ho says school officials are gathering information on the memo and the potential loss of money.
