Naples think tank launches website revealing state and local salaries and spending


TALLAHASSEE — A Naples-based think tank unveiled today an open government website, a database of public spending that is perhaps the most comprehensive in the Sunshine State.

From the website,, users can sift through billions of dollars in government spending at state and local levels, from school districts to state agencies. Payroll data, with salaries and benefits, can be searched by name, as can state payments to public and private vendors.
