Law to shed light on contracts not working

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A state law designed to shed light on millions of dollars in state government contracts is not working properly more than two years after it was passed.

  The Contract Sunshine Web site has been online since January but still doesn't have all state contracts entered into it as required by law.

  Project manager Tommy Winkler says progress has been slow due to a budget of $30,000, low staffing and other priorities.

  He also says the agencies can't enter many types of contracts with the current software. He says he's working on a fix.

  Winkler says he has no idea how many contracts aren't being entered because the law did not give his agency enforcement or audit authority.
