Nevadans deserve a government that is both accountable and transparent to the citizens it was designed to serve. Citizens have a right to now how, exactly, their tax dollars are being spent by government.
That is why Nevada Policy works to preserve and extend transparency in government through investigative journalism, litigation and our groundbreaking transparency project TransparentNevada.com.
Nevada Policy also provides free training and information on Nevada’s Open Meetings Law and the Public Records Act, which are the two main statutory mechanisms by which citizens can demand transparency from their government.
Taxpayers have the right to know how, exactly, their tax dollars are being spent. That’s why Nevada Policy makes government spending information available on TransparentNevada.com — a database of all public sector compensation information for the state of Nevada. This transparency project is a groundbreaking effort to help citizens understand how local governments are spending their tax dollars. Nevada Policy also runs a sister-site, TransparentCalifornia.com
