Indiana continues to be a national leader in financial transparency. The U.S. Public Interest Research Group gave Indiana’s Transparency Portal (ITP) a perfect score in a report, titled ‘Following the Money 2016: How the 50 states rate in providing online access to government spending data.’ Indiana increased its score for the third year in a row, and ranked among the top 3 states in the nation.
The ITP was designed to bring better visibility, openness and accountability to Indiana State Government. The portal contains information ranging from agency budgets to state contracts and agency performance measures in order to give Indiana taxpayers a detailed look at the state’s finances. You can access the online database by visiting www.in.gov/itp.
House Republicans have worked hard to further transparency initiatives by launching live-streamed legislative session and committee meetings. Transparency and fiscal responsibility remain a top priority for our caucus.
