John Kay, Director of the Louisiana Chapter of Americans for Prosperity, talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the new Louisiana Checkbook website, which will give citizens a close-up look at how state government spends your tax dollars.

Kay tells KEEL listeners that the new Louisiana Checkbook is based in a similar site in Ohio, that lets its state's citizens see exactly how every dollar that goes into that state's coffers is spent.

The purpose of Louisiana Checkbook, as described on their site:

"We believe that the best way for Government to win back the trust of the people is to shine a little light into how they are spending the people’s money.

States and local governments across the country have answered this call and created detail transparency websites and its time for Louisiana to follow suit!"
