Why we not have?

An iconoclastic sort writes this morning. He asks why Arkansas doesn't offer -- as the state of New York does -- a searchable database on state pension payments to school teachers. (And I'd add public employees, too, particularly to see the effects of multipliers for legislators, etc.). The pensions are funded in part by public money. It would follow, in a rational world, that this information should be made public to the people who paid the dough. Cagey language was inserted in the law that has been interpreted, so far, as barring disclosure of the information.
