Oversight, auditing and accountability are among the most important components of good government, but surprisingly, these fundamentals are seldom addressed by the Legislature. We need more than an audit for one-time savings. My proposal, Senate Constitutional Amendment 1, is designed as a mechanism to systematically evaluate state programs. Unlike other performance reviews in the past, this measure requires that the Legislature integrate the findings of audits into specific proposals to improve government. Rigorous third party audits will show taxpayers that government is spending their money wisely.
