COPELAND, LAVELLE ANNOUNCE 2008 DTC "TRANSPARENCY IN GOVERNMENT" LEGISLATION

DOVER -- Legislation was filed today in the Delaware State Senate to radically transform Delaware government and its accountability to the people of Delaware.

Senator Charles Copeland (R-West Farms) and Rep. Greg Lavelle (R-Sharpley) today filed the following legislation:


  • SB 184 -This Act requires the creation of a searchable budget database website to allow taxpayers to access details of how their tax dollars are being spent.

  • SB 185 - This Act requires the creation and maintenance of a searchable website for contracts entered into by school districts and charter schools.

  • SB 186 - This Act requires each school district and charter school to post its checking account activity (other than payroll checks) on its website. It also requires pay and benefits to be posted by job title at the beginning of each fiscal year

  • SB 187 - This Act requires each state agency to post its checking account activity (other than payroll checks) on its website. It also requires pay and benefits to be posted by job title at the beginning of each fiscal year.

  • SB 188 - This Act requires information concerning the distributions from the Delaware Strategic Fund to be posted on the Delaware Economic Development Office's website.


The Delaware Taxpayer Coalition fully supports these efforts, and we believe that fiscal transparency in Delaware's government should be one of our highest priorities. Rep. Lavelle and Sen. Copeland should be applauded for their efforts and we encourage everyone to become part of the campaign to pass these bills.
