Quotes

"in the past, there were only a handful of institutions and processes that held a government accountable to how it spends taxpayer money. among these is the publicpublic accounts committee, which can only conduct post-mortems once the damage is potentially done, and the budget itself, which is routinely steeped in mystery and secrecy. the fiscal responsibility act will change all of that" Professor Scicluna said
