PA Auditor General: Keep public notices in newspapers

Pennsylvania Auditor General Jack Wagner, the state's top elected Democrat, on efforts by the state Legislature to change the law requiring government bodies to publish legal notices in newspapers

This is not convenient and will decrease, rather than increase, bidding competition. In short, it's a bad deal for taxpayers.
