Madison…The Legislative Audit Bureau released the Audit of the Department of Transportation. Representative John Macco (R-Ledgeview) released the following statement:


“When we are considering an audit, I hope the audit report catches the department doing something right instead of catching them doing something wrong,” said Rep. Macco. “Unfortunately, that was not the case in this instance.”


“It is clear the Department of Transportation needs serious reform, and this audit shows why oversight and transparency of government is essential,” continued Rep. Macco. “I hope the entire legislature takes this opportunity to consider what we can do to make our Department of Transportation robust, transparent and trustworthy once again.”


“I thank the Legislative Audit Bureau, Joe Chrisman and the entire staff, for their diligent work on this and every other report they produce to the committee.”
