(a) Data on expenditure of money from the funds as specified under sections 3.303, subdivision 10, and 116P.08 may, if practicable, be made available on the Web in a manner that allows the public to obtain information about a project receiving an appropriation by clicking on a map. To the extent feasible, the map should include or link to information about each project, including, but not limited to, the location, the name of the entity receiving the appropriation, the source of the appropriation, the amount of money received, and a general statement of the purpose of the appropriation.
(b) If requested, the Legislative Coordinating Commission may, to the extent practicable, provide relevant executive branch agencies with public geospatial data that it receives for its Web site required under section 3.303, subdivision 10. The commissioner may make this information available to the public in a similar manner as information provided under paragraph (a).
(c) In creating plans for public expenditures from all geographically locatable or project based appropriations, prospective budget and project planning should consider geographic and data reporting that would facilitate the goals of this section.
