The Texas Tribune has created a searchable database of Texas state employee base salaries. The database contains the salaries of 667,000 public employees, including employees at state agencies, universities, public schools, cities and mass-transit operators. The majority of the page is devoted to displaying the data in a drill-down format that takes you through different agencies with the highest earners listed first.
The search box that allows individual name searches is on the right side of the page near the top just above the advertising. The box is labeled "SALARIES.”
