California received an “F” for its spending transparency access in a new report.

The California Public Interest Research Group Education Fund is the seventh group to review the transparency of states’ checkbook spending.

Connecticut, Oregon, Michigan and Indiana are the states with the best transparency websites, the report states.

According to the report, California has ranked last for the past several years. Issues regarding “bureaucratic fragmentation information” decrease the state’s score.

In search of improvement, California has made new data sets available on the open data portal project.
