Senators kill bill shielding government employee names

Legislation shielding the names and pay of government employees has failed to advance.

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 2-2 on the measure Tuesday, short of the majority vote needed for the bill to survive.

The measure was supported by the Hawaii Government Employees Association, which said in testimony that publication of government workers' names and salaries demoralizes the work force and doesn't adequately identify the state's expenses.

But the state Office of Information objected to the bill because government agencies could use it to withhold much more information about their employees besides just their names.
