MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabamians should soon be able again to see how state agencies are spending money.

Information on the state “checkbook” at open.alabama.gov has been unavailable since the fiscal year began more than two months ago.

Jennifer Ardis, a spokeswoman for Gov. Robert Bentley told the Decatur Daily (https://bit.ly/1TFOfIU ) that the Department of Finance has been told the site should be running again in the next week.

A notation on the website says that information has been unavailable since Sept. 30 because of a software problem.

The switch to the new accounting program earlier also delayed payments to thousands of state vendors.

The state started the site so people could see how state agencies were spending money.
