WHEREAS, the initial phase of the website required under SB 1796 consists of appropriations and expenditure data for all branches of state government; and

WHEREAS, JLAC is currently in the process of surveying governmental entities about how they could provide financial information for inclusion in the statewide transparency website; and
WHEREAS, JLAC will also be conducting workshops on how to implement SB 1796 related to local governments,
