HONOLULU (AP) — Efforts are under way to have Barack Obama select his native Hawaii as the home of his presidential library.

State lawmakers supported the proposal this past legislative session.

And now University of Hawaii officials are pressing ahead with creating working groups to study such issues as where a suitable site would be located.

A Hawaii delegation is to leave Sunday for Washington to meet with the head of the presidential library division of the National Archives.

The group led by UH Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Reed Dasenbrock will also travel to Little Rock, Ark., to meet the director of the Clinton Presidential Center and the Clinton Foundation.

Some Obama supporters on the mainland want the library located in Chicago.
