Auditor's Report Critical of Kentucky Racing Commission

Frankfort, KY – State Auditor Crit Luallen has released her findings and
recommendations regarding the Kentucky Racing Commission.
The report found no evidence of intent to defraud government,
but the Auditor's Office did find that the Commission suffered
from lax management and a disregard for standard business
practices.

During a morning press conference, Luallen says the report
uncovered no evidence that merits referral to any law
enforcement agency. But she stressed "that is not the standard
to which government should aspire."

The report was requested by Governor Fletcher, as an "agreed
upon procedure, rather than an actual financial audit.
