CT Sunlight

"Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants." – Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis

The goal of the CT Sunlight Project is to empower regular people to hold State Government accountable for their spending. Bloggers, journalists, students, academics, and average citizens can use this website to see how the State spends our tax dollars, identify corruption, and suggest ways to effectively reduce spending in Hartford.

* Visit PAYROLL to review the salary expenditures for each state agency for calendar years 2007, 2008 and 2009.
* Use CHECKS TO BUSINESSES AND PEOPLE to examine each line item of state government spending by agency, branch, and year.
* Information about payments to RETIREES is found on the retirees tab.

It is a growing compendium of information on how our state and municipalities conduct business, and let's you know what you are paying for.
