Rep. Jim DeCesare said today he plans to re-file his government transparency bill from last session and that he would like to see the rest of state government pick up the pace toward a more open and honest approach to spending taxpayer money.
“I appreciate Trey Grayson’s efforts and I’m glad to see Governor Beshear coming around on this a little bit, but I’d like to see him move a lot quicker. (Posting expenditures online) doesn’t need to be studied. The studies have already been done,” DeCesare said.
Gov. Beshear called last month for a task force to study government transparency and the task force held one meeting on June 19. Finance and Administration Cabinet spokeswoman Jill Midkiff said today that a second meeting has not been scheduled.
