Buried in the outside sections of Governor’s latest supplemental budget is a provision to move the Mass Turnpike’s accounting system into the main state accounting system (that’s NewMMARS for you budgeting enthusiasts).

This change will now make the MTA’s accounts (and spending down to a very detailed level) transparent to state budget officials.

I’m not sure whether to be happy about the progress or sad that such a basic thing counts as progress.
