Arkansas sets standard for financial transparency

September 25, 2013

Any town, county or city considering improving its open and transparent government efforts should consider the initiatives recently undertaken in Arkansas. According to the Carroll County News, the state government in Arkansas recently improved its ranking regarding financial transparency significantly.

While the state owes this improvement to the passage of Act 303 in 2011 - a bill which established a free website for data access and created a searchable portal for budget information - local officials can follow suit without passing legislation.
