(Neb)-Stenberg Wants NIFA Audited

By: John Axtell Posted at: 03/09/2017 08:47 PM
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -  Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg says he plans to seek an audit of NIFA - the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority - because it's refusing to cooperate with his office's request for information.  Stenberg wants auditors to review the authority's finances and staff salaries.
     Stenberg told a legislative committee Wednesday that NIFA is denying him information that should be posted on the state's spending transparency website and has engaged in a "campaign of obstruction" and made repeated excuses to keep him from getting access to its financial data.

 His comments were made during a hearing on a bill that would allow agencies such as NIFA to provide the state spending website with a link to their contracts instead of raw data.
