Illinois Government Transparency Site Expands

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — A website devoted to information about Illinois government is expanding.

The Ledger now shows how much the state has paid to groups and businesses that provide services to the government. It also includes salary information for state officials and details on boards and commissions.

It provides links to lobbyist reports and the General Assembly.

The site already offered information on state spending, contracts and campaign donations.

Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka operates the site. She says she’ll continue expanding the website to help people keep watch on their government and their tax money.
