Column: S.C. looks good on fiscal transparency
Placeholder Image
My office was pleased to receive national attention recently for our efforts to shed light on how your tax dollars are spent. The state’s fiscal transparency website was ranked among the top 10 in the country by a prominent government watchdog organization, the U.S. Public Interest Research Group. The group, which advocates transparency as a tool to hold government accountable, reviewed the transparency sites of all 50 states and issued grades based on how well states make detailed spending information available to the public.
