Fla. Legislature Puts Salaries Online

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida's legislative leaders are letting the public know how much people are getting paid to work for the Legislature.
Both the House and Senate quietly this week added links on legislative websites that allow people to look up legislative employee salaries. The two chambers are also posting copies of contracts.
The move to post legislative salaries comes nearly two years after Gov. Rick Scott posted salaries of most state workers. Scott eventually posted the salaries of professors and other university employees.
The decision to place the information online comes in the wake of a decision by Scott to shutter a budget-tracking website that the Senate paid $5 million to develop.
Ryan Duffy, a spokesman for House Speaker Will Weatherford, said the records posted online are the ones most frequently requested.
