We created this visualization to make transparent and give shape to Rhode Island's 2015 budget. Hover over to see where Rhode Island tax revenue originated and how it gets spent. Each column represents one stage of lawmakers' process for allocating the $9,894,362,162 budget.
Note: Column height is determined by the number of categories, not by dollar amount. While each block size represents its respective value, space is added in between all the blocks to make even the smallest funds visible.
