Financial disclosure forms filed by state officials for 2014 are available online at the Arizona Secretary of State's website.

"When it comes to cleaning up government, it's often said that sunshine is the best disinfectant," said Secretary Ken Bennett.

In the past, the forms were available from Bennett's office on request. He said it made sense "to make them even more accessible" by placing them online.

Bennett said the intent of requiring lawmakers and elected officials to file financial disclosures was to provide the opportunity for the public to scrutinize the forms for potential conflicts of interest.

"Now people can take advantage of that transparency online," Bennett said.
