The Sunshine Portal Bill, Senate Bill 195, passed the New Mexico Senate unanimously today.
The Sunshine Portal would put the state's checkbook and other public information online for the public to inspect.
"In this day and age, New Mexicans deserve to have access to government information in an easy-to-use, online format. The Sunshine Portal is an idea whose time has come." Lt. Gov. Diane Denish said. “This type of openness and transparency is a major step forward for New Mexico.”
