Transparency in the Treasury

Justin Katz

Treasurer Frank Caprio's online transparency site is up and running, providing a browsable collection of all expenditures for his department. Anchor Rising readers first heard of the project when we sat down with the treasurer last month.

The site is set up such that any other department in state government could quickly and easily follow the treasury's lead, and hopefully the entire executive branch is already making preparations to do so.
