Troubling BOE Audit Reviewed by Senate Budget Subcommittee
April 20, 2017
The troubling audit report from the Department of Finance on the Board of Equalization is the topic of the Senate Budget Subcommittee No. 4 hearing today, Thursday, April 20. CSAC legislative staff is testifying to the need for the statewide body responsible for sales tax allocation to have greater accountability, reliability and expertise to avoid future allocation errors as reported in 2014 and as recently as May 2016.
CSAC submitted a letter to the Governor and legislative leadership earlier this week in response to the audit findings and Governor Brown’s request for solutions to be in place by June 2017 to avoid future misallocation and errors by the state agency.
