(Neb)-Stenberg Wants NIFA Audited
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.
