Lawmaker Calls for Kansas to Add State Auditor with Conditions

Topeka, KS -

A Kansas lawmaker is calling for the state to create the position of state auditor.
The job typically includes probing agencies that skirt transparency laws. The push comes after legislative auditors found the state's Department of Education  gave some school districts extra bus funding not authorized by law. But Senator Dennis Pyle's request includes a twist.  He says the state should have an auditor but wants the position for one four year term unless the auditor uncovers enough corruption to pay for his/her own  office's budget. A democrat questions the expiration mechanism saying  an auditor should find fraud but not just to justify a budget.
