Walker says WEDC board to meet to discuss audit

MADISON, Wis. -

Gov. Scott Walker says he hopes the board of his lead job-creation agency can meet as soon as Wednesday to discuss a scathing audit released last week that detailed numerous law violations and other problems.

Walker said Monday he wanted the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. board that he chairs to meet and go over every point in the audit. The report last week by the nonpartisan Legislative Audit Bureau said WEDC broke state law, failed to adequately track money it awarded for economic development projects and sometimes gave money to ineligible recipients.

The Legislature's Audit Committee is scheduled to meet Thursday to discuss the report, the same day that the Legislature's Joint Finance Committee is scheduled to consider Walker's funding request for the agency.
