Keeping tabs on Gov. Beshear

We learned a week ago Gov. Steve Beshear is still sorting through the 3600 government efficiency suggestions he got from state employees last December so he can fulfill his promise to do an "efficiency study" he said would save $180 million a year.

As the time passes by -- at just under half a million dollars per day of persistent inefficiencies -- it looks more and more like citizens are going to have to take matters into their own hands.

That's why we pressured Gov. Beshear last summer to get to work setting up a web site showing citizens how our tax dollars are being spent (here and here).

He has said that site will be up in January. Perhaps we should check to see how efficiently he is moving toward that goal.
