Back in January when I interviewed Gov. Bill Richardson up in his office, I asked him if he was unwilling to release the names of the exempt state employees who were terminated to help balance the budget, if he would at least give us the titles of those let go and the agencies they worked for.
He said he'd think about it.
Four months later, I guess he thought it through. He released such a list today.
Of course, the decision to release this list might have more to do with the attorney general's opinion that Richardson may have violated open records laws by refusing to release the names.
