We recently reported that State Representative Gene Whisnant was selected as "Legislator of the Year" by the American Legislative Exchange Council. One of the achievements that Whisnant is very proud of is the development of the government transparency website in 2009. Whisnant says it's been online for over a year now, and they are still improving it. "And we also want to make it more user friendly. We created this website with no additional tax money. There was some opposition to the Bill in 2009. I think people thought, including the Governor's Office that this would cost too much money. And we were able to bring it in for zero cost to the taxpayers." Whisnant says in the last session, they added spending information from the Treasurer's Office and Public Contracting, so you can check out how your tax dollars are being spent. Here's link: Oregon Transparency Website.
