State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.
Monday, I released a column renewing my call for the creation of a state government transparency web site. I intend to introduce transparency web site legislation during the next legislative session.
The Appleton Post-Crescent has editorialized in support of the idea:
“Wisconsin is one of just 14 states that don't have a transparency website, where the public can go to track state government spending…..somehow, 36 other states have figured out a way to do it — and not spend millions in the process.
