A conservative think tank wants a judge to force Nevada's Public Employees' Retirement System to release details about retiree payouts.
The Nevada Policy Research Institute filed a petition in Carson City court this week requesting the move. The group says the agency changed its record-keeping to hide information that's supposed to be public.
Officials from the system declined comment. No court date has been set for the group's petition.
NPRI maintains a website called Transparent Nevada that shows salary and benefit information for public employees.
The organization says it found PERS no longer lists its data by the retiree's name, but by a Social Security number that's confidential and not releasable. NPRI says PERS won't put the information in a more usable format, and is circumventing Nevada's public records law.
