"Checkbook Register" Bill Tabled Unanimously

SB795 (Sturtevant), which would have required every locality and every school division to post on their respective websites a register of all funds expended, showing vendor name, date of payment, amount, and a description of the type of expense, including credit card purchases with limited exceptions for certain confidential information, was tabled unanimously in the House Counties, Cities and Towns Subcommittee #2 today. 

Thank you to all who contacted Delegates in response to our VSBA Action Alert to oppose this legislation.
