Over the summer The Bluegrass Institute’s FreedomKentucky.org project began an initiative to conduct numerous open records requests to obtain check registers, financial data, and budgets for Kentucky school districts, cities, and state agencies. Those results are slowly being archived in a sortable format so that you can see how your money is being spent! You can find a link to this database on the front page of FreedomKentucky.org listed as “State Spending Database“.
A new feature is available that allows for anyone browsing these databases to leave comments about what they find in these check registers! Find a questionable expense? Leave a comment about it, help raise awareness about how taxpayer money is being spent in Kentucky.
Browse the database to find your school district, city, or a state agency you are interested in!
