Some civic minded state lawmakers continue to push for transparency in government. Senate Bill 382 holds hands with House Bill 4121 in asking for a public database in which residents can search for details of every expenditure by each state department and agency. We say excellent.
Also: Freemichigan is allowed some down time on occasion, as this is not our only project. We have articles to write, a script for a 10-minute documentary to write, an business proposal to put together and another book deal in the works. For the next week or so, I will be in Florida taking in some spring training games in the Tampa Bay area. We’ll be back the last week of the month at some point and take up where we left off. In the coming months, we will be attending more public meetings and bringing back the news to this spot. See you then.
