Ten Million Accountants

There are ten million residents in Michigan. The transparency legislation that I introduced with Senator Tonya Schuitmaker, which is now law, empowers all citizens with information on how our state government is spending your tax dollars. Ten million accountants can help us trim the state budget to focus on the services demanded by “we the people” rather than special interest groups.

Thanks to our legislation, you can now download a rollup of each state agency’s spending plan for FY14. If you would like to become a citizen accountant, please review the data and send your top 5 spending reduction suggestions from the FY14 State of Michigan Spending Plans spreadsheet to my office at senpcolbeck@senate.michigan.gov.
