Check local government spending from home

OKLAHOMA CITY—Taxpayers will now have a quick and easy way to check out the state’s government spending.

The “Oklahoma Treasury Online Checkbook” was launched today by State Treasurer Ken Miller.

Miller said, “Banks give their customers online access to their accounts; it only makes sense for the state’s chief financial officer to provide the same access to Oklahoma taxpayers.”

The site contains information on expenditures and collections broken down by agency.

Payments to businesses are also included and can be viewed collectively or individually.

Deposits are also listed but do not disclose the names of taxpayers.

“This transparency initiative will allow Oklahoma taxpayers to hold state government accountable for years into the future,” said state Rep. Jason Murphey said.

The state’s checkbook register can be found by clicking on the online checkbook graphic on Treasurer Miller’s homepage, www.treasurer.ok.gov.
