CS/CS/SB 1796--Governmental financial information.
This bill requires a website be established for public access to
government entity financial information. The initial phase will include
appropriations data and expenditure data for all branches of state
government. The Joint Legislative Auditing Committee will oversee the
website and will propose additional phases of information to be made
available. The committee will provide a proposal by March 1, 2010, to be
submitted to the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of
Representatives, that will include a schedule of additional phases of
information by the type of information to be provided for specific
governmental entities, including local government units, community
colleges, state universities, and other government entities that receive
state appropriations. The proposal will include timeframes for
additional phases as well as a proposed development entity for the
additional information. These provisions were approved by the Governor.
