Bill Looks To Save Local Governments Thousands

A new bill in the Colorado state Senate is looking to cut down on administrative costs for local governments. The proposed bill would require county governments to publish expense and salary reports annually. Under current law, county’s are required to publish expense reports once a month and salaries twice a year in a local newspaper. The bill would instead require the county to list that information on their website, which proponents say would save taxpayers and local governments, thousands of dollars every year.

  1. I do not support this bill. I believe that it is very beneficial to Governmental transparency to have them published by a third party where the information is archived forever. We seem to be losing all transparency and accountability from governmental entities.
