On Monday, the Boston Globe reported that "payroll records for an entire 140-trooper State Police division have been hidden from public view and weren't filed with the state comptroller for several years."

That's $32.5 million in spending, according to the Globe.

"Of course that data should be there, all the data should be there," said Gov. Charlie Baker. "And I give kudos to the Globe for figuring this out."
