Today Governor Kaine launched a new website called "Virginia Performs" in order to allow citizens to view how the state measures up region to region, and compared to other states.
The site will focus on seven key areas, the economy, education, health and family, public safety, natural resources , government and citizens, and transportation.
The governor says the site will encourage state agencies to stay focused on measurable results.
Kaine went on to say that "this should reassure Virginians that their taxpayer dollars are being spent wisely."
