Assemblyman Kevin de LeÃ³n (D-Los Angeles) has introduced a bill intended to make state spending more transparent. We want to know what you think, state workers.
AB 400 would require agencies and departments post on their Web sites each year how they're spending their money. Several other states already have online tools that let anyone look at state spending. Here's an example of what Texas does.
We're interested to know what state workers think, since they're the ones who always have to carry out the marching orders that the generals under the dome issue when they pass this kind of legislation.
Can this be done with California's vast bureaucracy? Would it be an effective way to hold state government more accountable? What downsides, if any, do you see with this bill?
