Many people may think of government bodies as dishonest or accuse it of withholding information.
Oklahomans don't have to worry about that, at least not when it comes to those in charge of spending.
Oklahoma has received an "A" grade from a national advocacy group for the ease of tracking of the state's spending online.
This is good news, as last years grade was quite a bit lower at a "C."
The U.S. Public Interest Research Group says Oklahoma has improved its accountability system by using its user-friendly websites that provide information to the public on grants, contracts and other types of spending.
The annual report says Oklahoma is one of the most financially transparent states in the entire nation.
Finance and Revenue Secretary Preston Doerflinger made the improvment of transparency on the top of his top priorities list after last year's poor grade.
Doerflinger says Oklahoma has succeeded and is hoping to see an even higher score next year.
