Where Nevada candidates stand on transparency issues

Be sure to check out the TransparentNevada homepage today as TransparentNevada has just released the results of a survey of candidates for Nevada's legislative and constitutional offices on the issue of government transparency.

The questionnaire contained six questions for candidates to answer, including "Do you support putting Nevada's checkbook online in a searchable format, as states such as Missouri and Texas have done?" and "Do you support applying Nevada's open-meeting law to the Legislature?"

More than 55 candidates responded to the survey, and you can view their responses right here.

TransparentNevada will continue to add responses to its website as they come in, so if a candidate in your district or that you know hasn't answered, ask him or her to answer these six questions. Citizens should know where candidates stand on transparency issues.

Also, here's NPRI's press release announcing the results.
