The governor of Alabama signed an executive order that creates an online database of all state government spending and legislators’ relationships with lobbyists. This will go online later this year, but many other states have already made available government spending, salary and revenue databases, often in a site dedicated to issues of transparency in government.
Open Georgia includes a searchable database of state employees and their salaries.
South Carolina gathers together links to their various online databases including, state expenditures and salaries.
Transparency rankings and states with spending online are listed at Sunshine Review.
Legislation, citizen activism and current news on state government transparency can be found at the Center for Fiscal Accountability.
