MA state departments spending hundreds of thousands on bottled water

The MetroWest Daily News reports that "according to Open Checkbook, a Massachusetts state website touted by officials as a means to improve governmental transparency, state departments, little by little, have racked up almost $300,000 since July on bottles of Poland Spring and other water brands, and water coolers."

"With seven months to go in fiscal 2013, the state could potentially double that amount before the year ends."
