State Auditor Nicole Galloway today released the following statement in response to the request by Gov. Mike Parson to audit administrative practices within the Missouri Department of Public Safety:
Upon review of the Governor's request, I have committed to performing an independent audit of the administrative practices of the Department of Public Safety. As with any review, we will determine the scope of the audit to appropriately address any concerns brought forward throughout the process. I encourage anyone with information about questionable use of taxpayer dollars by the Department of Public Safety to contact my Whistleblower Hotline.
