What's New
A Joint Legislative Audit Committee Hearing was held on Wednesday, September 21, 2016. The audio archive can be accessed through this link.
Wisconsin Lottery — We provided an unmodified opinion on the Wisconsin Lottery's financial statements for FY 2014-15 and FY 2013-14. Lottery ticket sales increased from $568.8 million in FY 2013-14 to $574.6 million in FY 2014-15, or by 1.0 percent. Operating expenses increased from $408.7 million in FY 2013-14 to $415.4 million in FY 2014-15, or by 1.6 percent. During FY 2014-15, lottery proceeds used for property tax relief totaled $166.4 million.

Wastewater Permitting and Enforcement — In fiscal year 2014-15, the Department of Natural Resources spent $10.4 million to regulate approximately 1,250 municipal and industrial wastewater treatment facilities and large livestock farms. We found that DNR did not consistently meet its goals for issuing timely permits or for the frequency of permittee inspections and did not consistently follow its policies when issuing enforcement letters for certain violations. We make recommendations to improve program administration, better align its enforcement practices with its policies, and increase regulatory consistency among its regions.
