Public pay is public information

Posted By on Wed, Dec 1, 2010 at 3:32 PM

I am surprised that 11 employees of AASIS, the state 's computerized information system, objected to release of their names, job titles and pay under a Freedom of Information Act request by Seth Blomeley of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. I am not surprised that the attorney general has issued an opinion that says this is public information and that release is not an invasion of privacy. Nor does a requester of such information have to say why he or she might want it.
