From Pioneer Press:  Advocates for more transparency in payouts to government employees who resign under fire won another victory this legislative session, but full disclosure remains elusive.

Rep. Pam Myhra, R-Burnsville, sponsored changes to the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act, the state public records law, that broaden the type of administrators who must disclose why they were paid to leave their jobs early. However, the push to make more information public about the complaints that lead to resignations was again pushed back.
