Brogdon Addresses National Conference on Transparency in Government
The author of Oklahoma’s legislation to bring transparency
to state government spending was tapped to address a national conference
on “transparency in state government” last week.
State Sen. Randy Brogdon, author of Oklahoma’s Taxpayer Transparency
Act, joined officials from Pennsylvania, Kansas, Texas, and Washington
to discuss efforts to make government more open and accessible.
The August 9th event in Boston, Mass., was sponsored by the National
Legislative Program Evaluation Society.
“It was an honor to be able to talk to leaders from across
America about the great progress we have made in making data on
government spending more accessible to the public here in Oklahoma,”
stated Brogdon, R-Owasso.
“The taxpayers have a right to know where and how their tax
dollars are being spent, and Oklahomans can be proud that other
states are looking to us as a model,” he said.
Brogdon’s legislation, Senate Bill 1, created an online database
to show where every single penny of the public’s money is
being spent. The Legislature passed SB 1 into law during the 2007
