TexasBudgetSource.com has just completed its quarterly update to bring you the most up-to-date data on Texas government transparency. While all the data has yet to be crunched, I am happy to report that since the project began last spring, TexasBudgetSource.com has seen a growing number of Texas counties add check registers to their financial web pages. Thanks to the visionary leadership of Judge Keith Self, Collin County became the first county in America to post its register, as part of a comprehensive Financial Transparency Project. The two latest counties to post their check registers online are Coryell and Guadalupe counties in Central Texas. We congratulate them and taxpayers should appreciate their willingness to embrace financial transparency and accountability. Click here to see the full list of Texas county check registers on TexasBudgetSource.com.
