Sink wants legislators to order paperless payments

 Sink goes paperless 112309Vowing to save the state $5 million, Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink said Monday she's asking legislators to make it easier for her office to go paperless to collect payments from vendors. The proposed legislation would allow her to require electronic funds transfer payments, instead of paper warrants to and from vendors that do business with state government.

The change would reduce the cost per payment from $4.18 to17 cents per payment. "Save money, improve customer satisfaction, it will certainly help the environment and it will make state government a little greener,'' Sink said at her press conference Monday.
