Default Henry Taps Auditor to Lead Stimulus Oversight

Quote:
Gov. Brad Henry creates a state Web site to track stimulus funds and the appointment of State Auditor and Inspector Steve Burrage to serve as a watchdog on stimulus expenditures.“In light of the size and scope of the stimulus package, complete transparency is essential to ensure public confidence,” said the governor. “Oklahoma taxpayers need and deserve to know how every dollar will be spent in our state. By posting all information on the web and having the auditor oversee the process, we can bolster public trust and ensure an informed citizenry.”
Under the governor’s plan, stimulus data will be posted on the Office of State Finance’s “Open Books” web site at OpenBooks - Oklahoma's Finances: Online and In Action. The stimulus site can also be accessed by Gov. Henry’s web site at www.gov.ok.gov. Officials with OSF hope to have the site online this week.
