Auditor: Public due more access to information

March 1st, 2011 in News

New state Auditor Tom Schweich on Monday endorsed a bill that expands information posted on the Missouri Accountability Portal, a website created during the Matt Blunt administration to help Missourians see how their taxes are spent.

"I'm happy to lend my moral support to this effort," Schweich said Monday afternoon. "I think anything that expands public access to information is important."

Rep. Jason Smith, R-Salem, sponsored the bill adding public schools and county governments to the agencies supplying records placed on the Accountability Portal, www.mapyourtaxes.mo.gov, to help Missourians see their government's expenses.
