Today I testified before the Joint Committee on State Administration on behalf of S.2427, " An Act to Promote Payroll Transparency ", a bill I have filed to require Massachusetts Quasi- Public agencies to report employee compensation information to the state Comptroller so that it can be posted in the state's " Open Checkbook " system, which currently contains such information for state employees. The information is available for public inspection at CTHRU - Office of the Comptroller (macomptroller.org). You can read the bill here Bill S.2427 (malegislature.gov), and recent editorials supporting the substance of the bill here Mass. quasi-government agencies shouldn't hide payroll data (bostonglobe.com).
