State Audit Calls for Governor to Reimburse State for Vehicle Use

A new audit urges Governor Matt Blunt to reimburse the state for the times he's used state vehicles for personal and political purposes. KSMU's Missy Shelton reports from Jefferson City.

During a press conference releasing the audit, State Auditor Susan Montee made it clear the problem is one that's been around before the Blunt administration and extends to other statewide office holders

Montee is calling on lawmakers to address the matter and for the governor to reimburse the state until legislators resolve the issue. But the governor's response to the audit indicates his office believes the governor can use state vehicles regardless of whether he's on official, personal or political business.

The governor's office did agree with some of the findings and indicated it's already implementing some of her recommendations.
