In the name of greater transparency Mainer’s have a new website to check out to follow the state’s handling of your tax dollars.

Through the new Maine Open Checkbook website, individuals will initially be able to research the details of state expenditures, including vendor payments and employee compensation. Next year the State plans to expand the service to include revenue data and other detail related to expenses. Future enhancements are planned to include expanded analytics with graphs and comparative reports.

In a press release from the state house, Governor Paul LePage said, “Open Checkbook gives Mainers information about how their hard-earned taxpayer dollars are used by government by taking budget data out of government file cabinets and making it available to the public for the first time in an easy-to-access way.”
