For Immediate Release
Tuesday, April 21, 2009
JEFFERSON CITY - Continuing his commitment to open and transparent government, State Treasurer Clint Zweifel announced today the launch of his Open Government Web site: www.treasurer.mo.gov/OpenGovernment.asp. The site offers a consolidated location for open records from Treasurer Zweifel’s office.
"Government works best when its business is conducted in an open and accountable environment," Treasurer Zweifel said. "The Open Government site provides several documents, such as the MOST 529 Annual Report, which have not previously been available online, and we are continuing to identify similar documents to post online for easier access by the public."
Treasurer Zweifel’s office launched a redesigned Web site in February and has continued to expand the ease-of-use and content of the site. The Open Government site now contains records of investment results, state fund balances, the Missouri Linked Deposits Review Committee, the Missouri Investment Trust and the Missouri Higher Education Savings Program Board, which oversees the MOST 529 College Savings Plan.
"My goal is to provide useful information via the Web so that Missourians can monitor my office, ask questions and learn more about their government," Treasurer Zweifel said." I encourage feedback from citizens if they have questions or see room for improvement on the site. It is important Missourians know they can approach us with ideas and questions."
