Government Spending Databases are Cheap

The Mercatus Center has a new analysis on the cost of state spending databases showing that it typically costs far less to produce online websites tracking government spending than estimates indicate.

As we have pointed out, spending transparency is key to reducing wasteful spending, achieving greater competition and lower costs for government contracts, and achieving greater accountability.

There are proposals to create a database of state spending both in the Pennsylvania House and in the PA Senate.
