Madison, WI Today, State Senator David Craig (R-Town of Vernon) applauded Governor Scott Walker’s Executive Order creating an Office of the Inspector General within the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT). He released the following statement:

“Placing an Inspector General in the DOT is the type of proactive, systemic reform that has been desperately needed at the agency. I have long encouraged the adoption of this proven tool for rooting out waste, fraud, and abuse. I applaud Governor Walker for challenging the status quo within the agency and providing the tools necessary to protect taxpayers from further abuse.

“This a great first step, but the key to taxpayer accountability will be requiring the Inspector General to report to the legislature as well.”

    Senator : Why now ??
    -You built a new DOT headquarters building in Madison.
    -At that time the talk was to hire multi-hundred new state employed engineers( “legacy employees”) rather than use consultant engineering firms.
    -DOT as I understand it is laying off staff currently.
    -What were we paying Mark Gottlieb to be managing?
    -TOO LITTLE / TOO LATE .
    ( And we are currently funding a multi-million dollar study to again look at transportation funding options.)
    -Waste , fraud & abuse has come and gone along with state taxpayer money.
