Lawmakers Spend 500K for Spending Transparency

March 11th, 2009 by flanews

The Florida Senate will spend half a million taxpayer dollars to shed light on state spending.

The Senate is building a website to provide in depth details about how the state is using your tax dollars. The website will be called Transparency Florida, and will be accessible to anyone with a computer and an internet connection. Senator J.D. Alexander said as the economy gets worse people want more bang for their tax buck.

In these tough budget times when we have close to ten percent of Floridians out of work, weve got close to ten percent of people on food stamps, I think we owe a duty to Floridians to make sure every dollar we get is spent as effectively as possible, said Alexander.

The site will go live this summer.
