Searchable budget database website. Requires the Director of the Department of Planning and Budget to maintain a searchable budget database website that would allow persons to search and aggregate information for individual or specific appropriations or budget items. The Director would be required to have the database operational by July 1, 2009. When fully operational, all data in the database would be maintained for a minimum of 10 years. The bill would repeal a current provision that requires the Auditor of Public Accounts to maintain an online searchable database providing certain state expenditure, revenue, and demographic information.

This is already being done by the General Assembly. As best as I can tell, Del. Marshall is proposing the duplicating of existing state services, which doesn't seem like a great use of tax dollars.
