Budget transparency, here we come!

On December 17, 2014, the DC Council considered and approved the format for the FY 2016 budget to be proposed by Mayor-elect Muriel Bowser.   The council, presumably with support of the budget advocacy community, included some provisions to improve the transparency of the budget.   Consider, for example,
(C) Agency budgets shall be restructured to ensure accessibility and transparency for how taxpayer dollars will be disbursed. Agency budget structures should align with current or proposed agency organizational structures and programs and clearly indicate the source and amount of funding needed for each individual program, facility, or venue identified on the agency's website.
