Board of Wis. job agency wants more audit input

Posted:

WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) -- Board members for the state's economic development agency say they should have been allowed to participate in a recent audit that ultimately found a number of serious missteps.
   The board of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. wasn't allowed to know anything about the audit until the results were released last week. Several members said Wednesday they say they can't be expected to do their jobs as board members if they're shut out from the process.
   Gov. Scott Walker says maybe there needs to be a tweak to the rule governing audits.
   The audit was performed by the nonpartisan Legislative Audit Bureau.
   Democratic state Sen. Julie Lassa says she'd like to have LAB auditors address the board so the board can get a better understanding of the standards they're using.
