No transparency in state spending

APP.com this morning:

It’s stating what should be obvious, but apparently isn’t to Gov. Jon Corzine: The money in New Jersey’s state budget belongs to the people. All the people.

In this Internet Age, there is no legitimate reason that a citizen shouldn’t be able to sit down at a computer and quickly research how any state agency, authority or commission is spending taxpayer money.

Unfortunately, Corzine isn’t helping voters access information. To the contrary, he has spent an indefensible amount of time and money trying to keep public information secret. As a result, the public is not getting the facts it needs to participate in governing as our Founding Fathers intended.
