UPDATE: SB 936 Not In General Laws This Week

The Senate General Laws Committee (click here for committee members) finally released its docket for the week and unexpectedly, SB 936, the budget transparency bill, is not scheduled. Still not published is an economic impact statement, which the Department of Planning and Budget releases to make it seem that reform legislation is too expensive to pass into law. Thus, perhaps the delay in scheduling the bill for its hearing. Stay tuned. It may also go to sub-committee in the interim. In the meantime, let the senators on the committee know you want easy access to how your money gets spent. To see which senators to contact, click the link on the committee above.
