Updates to Nebraskaspending.gov

As you may have read in the Omaha World Herald (http://www.omaha.com/article/20091221/NEWS01/912219991).

On Monday, I continued my commitment to bringing transparency to Nebraska state government by putting the state's checkbook online. Nebraskans can now see exactly where their tax dollars are being spent, right down to the last penny.

This interactive list of 1.76 million payments made by the State of Nebraska includes all travel reimbursement, office supplies, state employee payroll and all other expenditures made by the State.

Here is a link to the new section of Nebraskaspending.gov:

Providing a more accountable and transparent government has always been one of my top priorities. I pledge to continue to improve and update nebraskaspending.gov during the next year.

Americans for Prosperity Rally

In case you missed it, yesterday I was honored to be a speaker at Americans for Prosperity's health care rally. The crowd was tremendous and Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee did a great job. If you didn't make it the Omaha Music Hall, you can catch Governor Huckabee's speech here: http://hotair.com/archives/2009/12/20/quote-of-the-day-577/
