State Releases Fiscal Data, Opens Government A Little

State Releases Fiscal Data, Opens Government A Little

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard has signed an executive order requiring the regular release of state revenue, expenses and cash balance data.

Daugaard has been getting paper versions of the reports every month. He says the figures help him monitor the strength of the state's finances.

His staff says the reports may prove useful to legislators, journalists and curious members of the public.

The change is one in a series of moves to make state government more transparent. South Dakota has been criticized for lack of openness compared to other states.

David Bordewyk is the general manager of the South Dakota Newspaper Association. He says it's good that Daugaard has kept transparency on his radar, but there's more work to be done.
