As we move quickly toward an April 30th public hearing on LD 1353, a bill that would hide public employees names as it related to their tax-payer funded salaries, local media continues to blast the bill, proposed by Assistant Senate Leader Lisa Marrache (D) of Waterville.

The Bangor Daily News says the bill is “blocking the sunhine” that MaineOpenGov.org has provided for taxpayers, and let’s face it, we need all the sunshine we can get here in Maine.

The Maine Sunday Telegram provides some additional insight, including posting the top 10 salaries in the executive branch of Maine’s government.
