Wrestling with results of ITD audit

House Transportation Committee members are still weighing the findings of the big performance audit of the Idaho Transportation Department, and how to respond to them. “If we all agree that ITD needs more money, there’s no way we can put off doing that,” Rep. Scott Bedke, R-Oakley, said as he pondered the audit results. But, he said, lawmakers also need to tie any increased funding to correcting flaws in Idaho’s system for maintaining roads, as identified in the audit. “We need to create this checklist,” he said. “I think there’s general agreement that we have this asset that we have to maintain.” House Transportation Chairwoman JoAn Wood, R-Rigby, said, “We wanted the audit. We need to take advantage of the audit to now formulate where we go forward. … It is our responsibility.”
