Want To See How The State Spends Its Money?

CB022158New Jersey has unveiled a Web site that allows the public to more easily track how the state spends its money. The site includes data for the last seven fiscal years and allows users to search multiple databases of state spending, revenue and purchasing. Searches on the site be done by specific agency, account type and vendor. Gov. Jon Corzine, who leaves office Tuesday, said his administration has been working on the site since last year. He called it “a common sense measure that enables the┬ácitizens of New Jersey to be fully appraised of how taxpayer funds are spent.”

But a Republican critic, Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon, said the site may not give a complete picture.

The site can be accessed at http://www.nj.gov/transparency. AP
