Amazon has released a list of their top 20 contenders for their new headquarters. Neither Kansas City nor Saint Louis made the cut.

Previously, both cities refused to publicly release the details of their bids, including what tax incentives they were offering, claiming that Amazon required confidentiality. Some have questioned whether that is a legitimate claim. But regardless, both cities should, in the name of transparency, release the entirety of their proposals. Maintaining faith in government requires no less.

3:50 pm:  CBS-St. Louis/KMOX News has posted St. Louis' Amazon HQ2 proposal.
