Susan Pace Hamill on Transparent State Budgets

3 minute video of Susan Pace Hamill, Professor of Law at the University of Alabama, responding to a question at the Baptist Center for Ethics luncheon at Memphis, TN today. Hamill talks about the need to have state budget information available to the public on the internet.

I'll post higher quality video of her entire speech next week.

I watched Obama give a speech a couple of days ago, and one of the things he is pushing is precisely what Hamill advocates: putting the public information (budgets) on the internet without forcing people to go through the FOIA to get it.
