Report: Colorado 2nd-best at stimulus transparency

DENVER, Colorado – How easy is it for Coloradans to see how their stimulus dollars are being spent?

A national watchdog group says it’s pretty easy. They’re announcing Wednesday that Colorado ranks second in a national survey of how well state Web sites explain how stimulus dollars are being spent.

Colorado ranks second on overall transparency and third at transportation spending.

The Colorado Public Interest Research Group is announcing details on Colorado’s transparency. Like most states, Colorado has hired some state workers to oversee stimulus spending. However, the national affiliate tracking transparency warns that Colorado may need technical improvements to meet federal reporting requirements on how stimulus money is spent.
