Representative Ball believes that tranparency is the best antidote for public corruption. Jesus said, \"Men seek darkness, rather than light, when their deeds are evil\". During the 2009 legislative session Representative Ball introduced and passed legislation requiring all state expenditures to be posted online to a searchable database. This is only one step toward the deterrence of corruption. Representative Ball believes the next step is to require all elected officials and their spouses to report to the Ethics Commission all city, county, or state contracts or employment to include a detailed description of the work performed, compensation, and the dates the employment or contract begins and ends to be posted online to a searchable database.
