Shedding Light On State Spending

July 11th, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

This, of course, is a great thing: 

 

JEFFERSON CITY–Gov. Matt Blunt today signed an executive order launching the Missouri Accountability Portal (MAP), a free, Internet-based tool that provides easy to use data about state spending. The new site will help ensure that state government is accountable to its citizens.

“Missourians deserve openness in state spending,” Blunt said. “We must be transparent. These dollars belong to the people of our state. We can use technology to allow Missourians to better see how their tax dollars are being used. Whether it is more than a half of a billion dollar increase to education or important investments in our state’s future, the Missouri Accountability Portal will provide Missourians with up-to-date information to track the use of their tax dollars.”

 

Opennessis never a bad thing, except if you’re an inept pork fetishist.
