Information from NY public authorities on website

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) New York's comptroller has added financial information from more than 500 state and local public authorities on a website launched in 2008 to make government information publicly available.

Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli says the authorities, responsible for billions of dollars of taxpayer assets and money, often do business outside of public view.

In December, the comptroller's office added state payment data to the website http://www.openbooknewyork.com/ that includes about 10,000 new payments daily, listing the agency submitting the request, the amount and recipient.

About six million payments are available for searching.

It also details revenue, spending, debt and property tax cap information for 3,100 local governments, going back as far as 1999.

Nearly 50,000 state contracts and amendments can also be searched, along with major spending categories for state agencies.
