Treasurer Josh Mandel’s office launched Ohiocheckbook.com this morning, which he says helps taxpayers exercise their right to know how their money is being spent.

"They’ll be able to search by category, so if they want to see what certain agencies are spending on office supplies or travel, they can do that," Mandel said. "It also provides a tool that can compare agency to agency and compare administration to administration back through time.”

Users can also search transactions by different state departments or by names of companies doing business with the state. Mandel says there’s seven years of data on the site, covering more than $408 billion. Mandel saidhe’ll now push for local governments to do the same with their spending.
