Arkansas ranks only D+ in governmental transparency

Arkansas ranks a lowly D-plus in a study aimed to discover which states are best at maintaining governmental transparency, according to the Associated Press.

The state tied for 27th and scored way below the top-scoring New Jersey, which only received a B-plus per a study compiled by the State Integrity Investigation.

Each report card was broken down into 14 categories of “corruption risk indicators.” Arkansas failed in public access to information and state pension fund management, though received an A in internal auditing.

Eight states failed with Georgia on the lowest mark of the totem pole.
