seethroughny.net

Living in upstate New York, the site See Through NY really caught my attention. If you live in New York, you know that you are taxed just about every which way possible, with sales and income taxes among the highest in the nation.

The site, See Through NY, was created by the Empire Center for New York State Policy which is part of the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research.

On the site, a visitor can find out how much each of the lawmakers are spending and how much is paid to Legislature vendors. Looking for payroll information? You'll find it here. And let's not forget information on those pork-barrel projects, pet local spending for a legislator's home town. I guess it's nice to finally see where some of my money is going.
