House committee holds hearing on posting bills

Posted on February 14, 2012 by sharkins

This afternoon the House Oversight, Reform and Ethics committee heard testimony on HB 5196, a bill that would require public entities to post wages and benefits for employees who receive more than $100,000 total compensation.

It also heard testimony on HB 5274, a bill that would require all contracts for all public entities greater than $25,000 to be posted.

The League opposes these new mandates as we’ve heard from a number of our members that these measures are both time consuming and unnecessary.
