Common Cause Wants Transparency -- State Sez "Maybe"

Friday, February 20, 2009

A coalition of New York groups, spearheaded by Common Cause/New York, is seeking to have Governor Paterson agree to a high level of disclosure standards (something New York state government historically hasn't championed) for economic stimulus money (in line with President Obama's promise that "every dollar" will be tracked.) A spokeswoman for Governor Paterson, Erin Duggan, responds "We're looking at the data we have and expect to have, and how to post it in the most useful manner. Many of their suggestions are ones we're already working on." We'll keep you posted...meantime you can keep an eye on it yourself at New York State's economic stimulus tracking site.
