The Kentucky Legislative Research Commission has added a new feature to their site that allows Kentuckians to search the expenditures of the Kentucky General Assembly. Interested in the travel reimbursements your state senator receives? How much do you think your representative is compensated throughout the regular session? You can find out here!
|This is an example of a returned search result|
The search engine allow for searches of legislators, full-time employees (the site actually calls them ‘permanent’ – think about that for a second…), and part-time employees (I guess you could say ‘transient’…)
This new feature combined with other recent additions to the site are an encouraging step toward making Kentucky’s government transparent.
Of course this doesn’t mean that we will stop our hard work providing resources for Kentucky’s citizens through our own transparency site with articles like this one.
