Publication of information contained in local payment warrants.  Authorizes local governments to publish information relating to warrants paid by the locality. The warrant information that could be published would be the names of payees, amounts paid, the serial numbers of warrants, and dates of payments. Information relating to tax refunds would be published only if the information were aggregated or classified so as to prevent the identification of the payee of the tax refund. Read the Bill »
