“Just last week, a draft version of a state audit on OHA was leaked to the media, revealing millions of dollars were misspent by the state agency.
What came out of the audit disappointed former OHA chair and state senator Clayton Hee.
“In my opinion, they need to lower their voices so they can hear each other as opposed to shout at each other,” Hee said.
Hee was especially concerned about the portion of the draft audit that mentioned allowances for trustees were marked up from $7,000 to $22,000.
“That is a huge increase in my opinion and so with that, comes huge responsibility and it requires transparency and it requires accountability,” Hee said.
The audit’s final version is expected to be released within a few weeks.
The OHA election bill is now up for review by the Senate judiciary committee.”
