JFC adds comprehensive audit to state budget for GAB

by
Government Accountability Board
Government Accountability Board

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - On a party-line vote, Republicans on the Legislature's Joint Finance Committee have added a provision to the state budget calling for a comprehensive audit of the Government Accountability Board.

State Senator Mary Lazich is the author of the bill which would evaluate election-day processes, how the agency responds to complaints about voting irregularities, how the voter database is used and how local election officials are trained.

Twelve Republicans voted for the measure and four Democrats voted against it.

The director of Wisconsin's ethics and elections agency, Kevin Kennedy, has been quoted as saying he would welcome an audit, feeling it would show the need for more funding
