HONOLULU (AP) - The state Ethics Commission is closing its review of travel expenses rung up by the University of Hawai'i in sending the Warriors to New Orleans to play Georgia in the 2008 Sugar Bowl.

The commission said Thursday that there's insufficient evidence to warrant pursuing charges of violating the state ethics code.

Commission executive director Daniel Mollway had said the panel wanted to determine if people with no official function went on the trip at state expense.

The cost of sending 550 people has been estimated as high as $2
million. The university initially refused to identify 75 of them.

The commission is requiring the university to create a formal policy concerning participation in future postseason events.
