BREAKING NEWS: New Audit Shows Huge Waste, Inefficiency at Caltrans
In Some Cases, Caltrans Doesn’t Even Know How Money Is Being Spent
According to a new audit by the California State Auditor, Caltrans’ road maintenance operations are fraught with waste, abuse, and basic fiscal malpractice.
“The audit basically found that Caltrans doesn’t even track how it spends maintenance money,” said Senator John Moorlach (R-Costa Mesa). “This is more evidence that California’s road problems aren’t due to a lack of money, but rather a lack of competence at Caltrans.”
