OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahomans will now have an easy way to understand how their taxpayer dollars are being spent.
On Wednesday, Gov. Stitt announced the launch of Oklahoma Checkbook, which is an easy-to-navigate site so they can see how their taxpayer dollars are being spent.
“Since day one, I have said we need to put our state government checkbook online so the people of Oklahoma can hold their agencies and elected officials accountable,” said Stitt. “Oklahoma Checkbook creates a level of accountability and transparency within Oklahoma’s government that is unprecedented. I look forward to seeing how this user-friendly tool helps keep us on track to becoming a top ten state in budget transparency.”
Officials say it is a way to be transparent with voters, while also providing a way to uncover potential accounting errors in state government.
