Senator Craig Applauds Creation of Inspector General at DOT
"This a great first step, but the key to taxpayer accountability will be requiring the Inspector General to report to the legislature as well."
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.”
