The Knesset Finance Committee approved the NIS 221.72 million in budget for 2006 requested by State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss, down from the NIS 223.55m. budgeted to the office in 2005. "Our office is in need of the committee's assistance and support," said Lindenstrauss. "We are Israel's frontline soldiers working to eradicate corruption," he said. NIS 144m. will go to comptrolling itself; NIS 33.5m. to the public complaints office; and NIS 26.4m. to managing the office (including planning, editing, and consulting). The funding will help the office increase its work force, expand its activities, and realize its goal of real-time supervision of government, Lindenstrauss said.
