Budget Transparency Act axed

A measure by Rep. Dennis Kintigh to post the state budget online and make it searchable was tabled last night in the House Appropriations and Finance Committee.

Concerns about the bill included the work that would be involved with posting the budget online, and the cost. So Kintigh will turn the bill into a memorial so the idea can be studied. Maybe next year.

The demise of that bill comes as the Legislature is mostly on a roll this year in terms of transparency measures.
