Rep. Olsen Supports Key Transparency Legislation for Taxpayers

A vocal proponent of improved transparency in government, today in Springfield State Representative David S. Olsen (R-Downers Grove) spoke in favor of a House Bill that would increase the amount of information that must be made available to taxpayers when school districts wish to increase their debt limit.

"(This bill) improves transparency for voters, not only of the principle, but also of the interest and borrowing costs," said Olsen."With these debt extensions, I have a concern about the transparency to the voters; whether they truly understand what they're voting on."
