‘We need to do something’

In response to the new performance audit of the Idaho Transportation Department, Clete Edmunson, transportation adviser to Gov. Butch Otter, just told lawmakers, “We really appreciate the findings in this report. … We need to do something, we need to take care of this investment … an investment the people built - it’s our job to take care of it.” Idaho Transportation Board Chairman Darrell Manning said  the auditors “did a superb job, I think, identifying many of the problems.” The audit, he said, “largely validates the direction the department has been headed for the past two years. … Believe me, we will be looking at it very strongly. Even though we’re in a crisis management situation at the moment with regard to funding, we’re still going to do everything we can … to improve the system.”
