A website designed to detail Arkansas public finances is partially up and running.
Backers of Transparency Arkansas.gov, include the Lieutenant Governor, Mark Darr.
The website is designed to be a resource for citizens and legislators who want to know where their state, city, town or school district get their money, and how that money is spent.
It was created as a result of an act passed last year in the Arkansas General Session.
The Department of Finance and Administration is tasked with keeping the information complete and up to date.
"I am thrilled to know that Arkansans will now be able to go online and track how the state government is spending their money," stated Lt. Governor Darr on his website.
"The online checkbook will show how much a state agency spent, to whom the expenses were paid, and for what amount." Darr continued, "I believe this transparency will help eliminate wasteful spending and provide the accountability Arkansans deserve.
I look forward to seeing more transparency such as the online checkbook being put into action throughout all of state government."
The bulk of the financial data arrives at the end of this week.
