The Kansas Taxpayer Transparency Act authorizes the Secretary of Administration to develop a single searchable Web site accessible to the public at no cost.

The legislation also established the 15 member Public Finance Transparency Board which is comprised of executive branch officials, state legislators, and the general public. The Public Finance Transparency Board advises and consults with the Secretary of Administration on the content, format, and reports to be produced and incorporated into the KanView Web site.
