The state is opening its books and letting the public see all of its financial transactions. Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka's office has launched "The Ledger", a website which gives you more than a glimpse into the state's finances. Viewers can log onto the site and see the most recent information on state employee salaries, agency budgets, or the state's backlog of bills.

Topinka says she wants to make sure her office remains transparent with financial information about the state.
