Act 18 Jun 30 HB 15 Pennsylvania Web Accountability and Transparency (PennWATCH) ActTier 3 For Liberty All Members Unanimous Vote
The Vote was unanimous in both House and Senate and will be graded “All Members”
because all legislators and the Governor will get equal credit.
PennWATCH Pennsylvania Web Accountability Transparency and Contract Hub
allowsanyone to track how the government is spending tax dollars using a searchable onlinedatabase. This is a major step forward in bringing transparency to State Government and
allowing The Forgotten Taxpayer to “follow the money”.
The Web site, which the Governor's Office of Administration will host, will launch by Dec. 31,2012
. The new Web site will include spending information; contractor data; state taxcollections and federal revenue received; and the name, position and salary of every stateemployee.web link Jim Christiana  The vote was unanimous and, yet, under Democratic House Leadership, an identical bill(HB1460 of 2009 also introduced by Rep. Jim Christiana)was never brought to the floor for avote. A similar bill had been passed in Republican controlled Senate in 2009.  There is a clear difference between Democrats and the new Republican Majority (to bedistinguished from the Perzel Republican Majority).For some background on HB 1460 of 2009 identical to HB 15 of 2011, see State SpendingTransparency Nathan Benefield Commonwealth Foundation 19 June 2009) and Spending Transparency & Accountability (Commonwealth Foundation 3 December 2009)
