This seems like quite a good idea. There is no reason why citizens shouldn't be able to easily tell exactly where their money goes.

It's such a good idea that the state's been doing it for years.

ABSOLUTELY!! The public SHOULD know where and 'how' every penny is 'earned' and 'used' by the government for the people...!! This is just common sense! It's about time someone uses some logic in running the business of government!!

It's ONE thing for the govies to know where to go to find info, it's quite another to educate the public and provide a customer service friendly site with easy access to that info.
