Denver (AP) Activists are calling on state lawmakers to require school districts to post their spending reports online.

About 30 people turned out at the state capitol today to show their support for a bill from Republican Sen. Ted Harvey of Highlands Ranch.

The measure - Senate Bill 57 - originally would have required such reports to be posted monthly in a searchable database. It was watered down last week to simply encourage districts to post the information.

Harvey says he’ll try again to make it a mandate when the full senate debates the bill, which is expected to happen Friday.
