His name is Tom James. He is a Wyoming State Senator from Rock Springs. Recently he put in a request to see how much every employee of the state of Wyoming makes, in their respective positions.

The story has been reported that he asked for the names and salaries of every school district employee in Wyoming. But he requested much more than that.

So why is he doing this? Some worry that he might release this information to the public. Truth is, this is already public information.

Best way to find out, ask the man himself. So I did. The interview is below.
