An Update to HB 4–the open government act. 2 June, 2007

Posted by stoptaxing in Action Item, State.

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/679580360  Our friends at Firststatepolitics are still pushing to win open government.  They are fresh off a house victory and now need your help again for the senate.  This goes hand and hand with our joint effort to STOP wasteful government and over taxation.  Why?  This bill would allow the public and members of the General Assembly not on the JFC to know what is in the budget. 

Right now they don’t even see it until right before the vote.  That makes it easy to load up the budget as has been happening over the last 14 years.  Many responsible legislatures would hold their nose and vote for the budget because it was too late to change it without shutting down the government.  You see it is delivered just hours before the end of the financial year.  To vote it down would require one to have an alternative plan ready.  The result is not only is the public shut out of the process, but so our most of our elected officials!

Change is nearly here.  Let’s make it happen.
