Push for Transparency in US State Finance

Only Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Hawaii, Indiana and Minnesota do it. Why doesn't your state or province? Do you know where you taxes are being spent?

Grover Norquist (of Americans for Tax Reform) and Ralph Nader co-signed a letter to all governors suggesting that they "emulate and go beyond the advances in bringing more openness to governmental expeditures put forth by several governors including Governor Mitch Daniels of Indiana."

Is obfuscation intentional, or is the absence of transparency needed as a pork-concealing bureaucratic blanket?
