The folks at Sunshine Review have put together a great chart tracking the transparency of pension systems in each state. Two categories of information (names and dollar amounts) are the focus of the chart.
Obviously, because Kentucky does not allow this information to be made public to taxpayers, it has a clearly marked “no” in each category. You will notice that there are many other states way ahead of Kentucky in the transparency department.
Kentucky doesn’t stack up well. We have a lot of work to do.
