    Mississippi officials, legislature, government agencies, and contractors do not have web access or open transparent in formation for the citizens in a complete manner that is searchable. The first people that they should openly report to are the citizens for whom they work and the public that pays taxes and funds the state. Many other states have public access to the same information that state workers managing these organization have including our neighboring state of Louisiana who is rated near the top in public access to government information. Mississippi has great conservative leadership with a Governor that has ben an auditor and senate leader,,, we should be able to accomplish the performance and accountability as well as the transparency law policy that has already been passed in Mississippi! I shared this with the Honorable Speaker Gunn at the town hall meeting at MSU. search government transparency and web access to financial and government actions. D. Reed
