Kansas City Star: Louisiana treasurer launches online searchable debt database

Kansas City Star: Louisiana treasurer launches online searchable debt database . “How does Louisiana’s debt load stack up against other states? Where is the state spending its billions on construction projects? Which parishes are getting the most state-financed road and bridge work? How did the governor and lawmakers spend last year’s surplus? Those answers are available on a new website created by Treasurer John Schroder’s office that aims to add sunlight to the amount of money that Louisiana borrows, how it spends those dollars on construction and what other debts the state carries on its books.”
