Pa House employee salaries to be made public

I am not quite sure why this is news, as the salaries of public employees should have always been easily accessible to the interested taxpayers who foot the bill for the salaries. But it is, as State House Speaker Dennis O'Brien, acknowledging that getting such public information was made "difficult and arduous" in the past, announced that within two weeks the salaries of all 1600 House employees would be made public within two weeks.

O'Brien's announcement comes on the heels of the disclosure last week of the millions of dollars that legislative leaders spent on secret staff bonuses.

It is time for our public officials in Harrisburg to stop working beneath a cloak of secrecy and change the way they do business. Our representatives have to finally come to the reality that they work for us - the taxpayers with a stake in the future of this commonwealth - and that they are being sent to Harrisburg to serve at our will and are to be held accountable to us. There will be no more tolerance for the way they're used to doing business.

Evidently the wake-up call that was sent after the pay raise fiasco wasn't enough to awaken them all.
