Govts at High Risk for Corruption

Governments lack transparency, accountability to citizens, and are at high rish for corruption

According to a new study of all 50 statehouses, state governments lack transparency and accountability to citizens, and remain at high risk for corruption.

Caitlin Ginley, a staff writer for the Center for Public Integrity and a project manager on the study, points out that, "In every state, there's room to improve the ethics laws, the level of transparency on government proceedings, the disclosure of information, and - most importantly - the oversight of these laws.”

Not a single state received an A in the State Integrity Investigation ranking, a product of the Center for Public Integrity, Public Radio International and Global Integrity.
