County websites with online budgets? Disturbingly few

So far, the My Government Website project on Sunshine Review is discovering that posting county budget information online is much less common than it should be.

When I say put budgets online, I’m not talking about the exciting new approach of putting checkbook registers online.

I’m talking about any budget information.

  • Alaska: 38% of counties with no budget.
  • Arizona: 13% with no budget.
  • California: 10% with no budget.
  • Illinois: 83% with no budget.
  • Louisiana: 77% with no budget.
  • Oklahoma: 96% with no budget.
  • Allowing for errors and for the fact that some websites might have budgets but a Sunshine Review contributor couldn’t find it, these counties need to clean up their online acts.

    Here’s a state-by-state comparison.
