Track government spending. Like you, I expect state government to be accountable and transparent. I voted to put all state spending online in a searchable database. This will allow you to easily keep track of how your tax dollars are spent. It is possible to search databases by agencies making payments, vendors, or by zip code of vendors. If you’re interested in knowing where your money goes, visit the database at http://spending.dbm.maryland.gov.
