|Subject:||Auditor General to Conduct Audits of General Assembly|
|In the near future, I will be introducing legislation that would require the Auditor General to audit the financial affairs of the General Assembly and its legislative service agencies. The Auditor General would be permitted to perform special audits if deemed necessary as well. Copies of all audits would be submitted to the President pro tempore of the Senate, Minority Leader of the Senate, Speaker of the House and the Minority Leader of the House.
Currently, the financial affairs of the General Assembly and its legislative service agencies are audited by a certified public accounting firm, which is retained by the Legislative Audit Advisory Commission. Having the duly elected Auditor General perform this responsibility would save money and insure greater accountably.
If you have any questions regarding this legislation, please contact Brianna Medevich in my office by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 717-783-3815.
Introduced as HB1360
