State Audit Report Released

Feb 14, 2012

State Auditor Adam Edelen says the first phase of a state audit found problems with reviews of bridge inspection reports conducted by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. Of 40 reports tested by auditors, 8 were not reviewed. KYTC spokesman Chuck Wolfe says most of the un-reviewed reports came from an eastern Kentucky district, where personnel shortages had led to a buildup of pending reviews. He says other districts have loaned their personnel to help with reviews, and as of recently, completed two-thirds of those reviews in question.  Despite some 60 recommendations to various agencies Auditor Edelen issued a clean opinion on the Commonwealth's government finances
