House is unanimous for ITD performance audit

According to Eye on Boise, the House has voted unanimously, 67-0, for a $550,000 performance evaluation of the Idaho Transportation Department. Rep. Marv Hagedorn, R-Meridian, said “another set of eyes” is needed on the department. Rep. Phil Hart, R-Athol, said ITD has had three directors in the past three years, and three board chairmen, and the state’s had three different governors and started GARVEE bonding. “There’ve been a lot of changes in the department,” Hart said. “We think it’s appropriate that we take a look at them through this performance audit, and make sure that if and when we give them more revenues that those moneys are being spent wisely.” resd the rest of the story here.

Well, there is a half a million bucks shot. Seems like they always have money for these studies but never have any money for funding something important. These studies never amount to anything anyway. They do this just to make them look important. The Legislature needs to stay out of the GARVEE business and let ITD run the program.
