|Subject:||Budget Procedures Reform: Increased disclosure of information relating to special funds|
Please join me as a cosponsor of legislation that would reform the statute governing the Commonwealth’s budget procedures.
While the development of PennWATCH and the State Treasurer’s public transparency portal have made progress in ensuring access to the Commonwealth’s financial data, detailed information relating to programs funded from special funds is not readily accessible.
My proposed legislation would require that quarterly reports be issued by the administration on the amount committed and awarded from special funds that are used to provide grants and subsidies. This will improve the ability of the Legislature to exercise oversight over the funds.
I look forward to working with you on this important legislation.
Introduced as HB921
