Why the new Governor hasn't gotten on board with the government transparency movement is quite a mystery. Kentucky's version of the Taxpayer Transparency Act of 2008 lies dormant in a House committee.
Speaker Jody Richards will have to tell taxpayers directly that how he spends their money is none of their business next week when he kills off the same act added as an amendment to HB 422.
For a group that is supposed to be interested in honesty and good government, these guys sure hold tight to their precious secrets.
Think about that the next time you send any tax money to Frankfort.
