Indiana school superintendents will have to disclose more about their pay under a new state law.

Gov. Mitch Daniels signed the bill into law this week. House Education Chairman Robert Behning says the bill was drafted after it was discovered one superintendent's compensation package topped
$1 million.

Indiana school corporations will have to hold public meetings before signing contracts with superintendents where they disclose the total annual compensation in the contract. The corporations will also have to take public comment and post the contract on their websites.

The law takes effect July 1.
