Senate Bill 2516 would have required the Florida Department of State to create and run a website listing expenditures by state and local government entities for contracts over $5,000. Introduced by Sen. Ronda Storms (R-Brandon) on March 2, 2007, the bill died in committee on May 4, 2007.

Website

The bill required the Department of State to create a searchable website, available for free to the public. For each quarter of the calendar year, the site would have listed each expenditure by a government entity for all contracts over $5,000. Each contract listed online would include:

  • Name of the government entity making the expenditure
  • Date of the expenditure
  • Amount of the expenditure
  • Purpose of the expenditure

Each full-text contract must also be available on the website.

Exemptions are made for any public record exempt under the law.

Status
