State treasurer revamps expense accounting after audit

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Treasurer Ron Crane has revamped how he documents some of his office's expenses, after concerns raised by state auditors last year. A 2012 audit of Crane's office determined expenses from his annual bond-rating trips to New York, including limousine transportation, weren't properly reported. Auditors also questioned Crane's use of a state credit card to buy $8,000 in gas for his personal car, and his office's funding of a women's financial conference. In a report released Tuesday, auditors say Crane buttressed record-keeping for the New York trips, requiring employees to document specific expenses. He now tracks gas purchases, reimbursing Idaho for personal trips. And while auditors contend Crane is still inappropriately funding the women's conference, he has revamped its nonprofit board — to distance its leaders from the treasurer's office.
