Governor Walker believes government must be efficient, effective, and accountable to best serve the citizens of Wisconsin. In 2013, Governor Walker launched OpenBook, which allows the public for the first time to search state expenditures. Governor Walker also increased government accountability by requiring each cabinet agency to report quarterly on its performance through Agency Performance Dashboards. Now, Governor Walker is launching another resource to increase transparency in government by directing state agencies to post their public meeting notices and minutes online. This centralized website allows citizens to access public information in a way that is more convenient and transparent.
This website shares public meeting notices and minutes for state agencies. All state cabinet agencies are required by Governor Walker’s Executive Order #235 to post their public meeting notices and meeting minutes. Additional state agencies and boards also contribute posting meeting notices and minutes to develop a more robust listing of publicly available centralized meeting information.
