The public is not permitted to view the pension packages and amounts of ex-lawmakers . It's always “open government” on THEIR terms.
Why the heck are [part time] legislators, who meet only several weeks every 2 years, getting a retirement package at all? That's been one of my questions for years and no one has answered.
And why let Rick Perry get a salary and his retirement package at the same time for being a part time governor?
Some things are just plain idiotic! It’s time for some big changes in our state government.

How right you are PSstern--lots of tax money is being wasted. And, in additon to the state waste, the same kind of BS is taking place in Booger County--more wasted tax money on pensions, etc for part-time crooked politicians. Furthermore, the whole 3rd branch of our gubment (the so-called justice system) is a big waste of tax money--it's no help to the peasants--only helps the big dogs and corporate interests. That thing need to undergo a 50% budget cut at all levels---AND in 6 months it should undergo another 50% budget cut at all levels. Then we can see if it becomes worth a Sh** for the peasants.
