Localities and school divisions; posting of register of funds expended. Requires every locality with a population greater than 25,000 and each school division with greater than 5,000 students to post quarterly on the public government website of such locality or school division a register of all funds expended, showing vendor name, date of payment, amount, and a description of the type of expense, including credit card purchases with the same information. The bill allows any locality or school division to exclude from such posting any information that is exempt from mandatory disclosure under the Virginia Freedom of Information Act, any personal identifying information related to a court-ordered payment, any information related to undercover law-enforcement officers, and any information related to a settlement or contract that contains a confidentiality clause. The bill has a delayed effective date of July 1, 2020. Read the Bill »
