About Half Of Mass. Quasi-Public Agencies Fail To Report Spending11:28

This article is more than 2 years old.

Quasi government agencies in Massachusetts provide public services and receive state financial support but operate with less accountability than traditional state offices. After the passage of a 2010 transparency law, these agencies have been required to provide their financial records for the State to post online.

But, a Boston Globe report has found that 19 of quasi-public agencies have not disclosed financial data for at least one of the past three years.
