JEFFERSON CITY — Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder said he plans to launch a state website to gather tips about wasteful spending in Missouri government.

Kinder, a Republican, said the website should be running soon. He detailed plans for it while asking a legislative committee on Wednesday to increase his office budget by about $38,500 to get it back to its level in 2009.

Kinder said if the website and his staff don't identify enough wasteful spending to offset the appropriation, he'll return the additional money.

Kinder was elected to a third, four-year term last November. He said he wanted to launch the website last year but decided to delay it so that it didn't appear politically motivated.
