Welcome to the State of California

Welcome to the official State of California Web site.

This website has been created to help you understand how Post the Finances would work in practice. The state of California would make history by becoming the first state in the nation to post its finances to the Internet. A message from California’s Governor: "We take our state motto, ‘Fiscal Honesty Is The Best Policy’ very seriously. We value the input of our citizens, who can now, on the state's Web site, follow the trail of all of the state's revenues and expenditures, in and out of all state government departments and agencies. Like the great man 'Honest Abe,' after whom our state is named, we believe fiscal honesty is above all for the benefit of our citizens.

What's New

The state of California declares June 4 to be Post the Finances Day, to commemorate the day in 2004 when it first adopted Post the Finances. The purpose of Post the Finances Day is to educate the public about how Post the Finances works, and to encourage other states, counties, and cities to adopt it. Events scheduled for Post the Finances day statewide include parades and fairs, TV news and radio broadcasts and articles in the press explaining how the system works and how citizens can play their part in overseeing state finances, virtually conducting daily audits of the state.
