Beshear Administration officials still need a kick in the butt to get them serious about putting government spending data on the internet so taxpayers can better help pinpoint misuse of public funds.
Some Louisville council members have the right idea. When the biggest city in the state posts its checkbook to the internet, more citizens will be emboldened to force their representatives to do the same.
Meanwhile, it appears the legislature is going to have to get Beshear back on track to fulfilling his promise to make government more transparent.
Way before you will deserve more of our money, Governor, you need to come clean about where every penny is going. We can’t afford any more secrecy and double-dealing.
