ST. LOUIS – Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder requested an additional $38,500 from the legislature Wednesday, with plans to use the money to create a website to curb wasteful spending.
Kinder said he soon plans to launch the website, which will allow citizens to provide tips about wasteful spending in Missouri government.
The Republican said if his website doesn’t identify enough wasted dollars to offset the extra appropriation he’ll return the cash.
He didn’t provide a date the site will be online or the URL for it when speaking to lawmakers Wednesday.
Kinder said he delayed starting his website until this year because he didn’t want it to seem politically motivated. He was re-elected to a third term last November.
