Fraser files legislation to require state audit of LCRA
February 08, 2013, 5:00 pm by James Walker
Sen. Troy Fraserís dissatisfaction, and often frustration, with how the Lower Colorado River Authority conducts its business, has resulted in his filing legislation to have the utility submit to a state audit of its financial and operational practices.
Fraser (R-Horseshoe Bay) filed the legislation Friday which would compel the Texas State Auditor to audit the LCRA, which is charged with managing the water in the lower Colorado River basin, including the Highland Lakes.
"Since being elected to Senate District 24 in 1996, I have constantly battled with the LCRA on how they conduct business," said Fraser in a statement released by his office Friday."Asking the State Auditor to do a thorough review of LCRA's finances and operations would benefit all the customers in the basin.Ē
The review must be completed
by January 1, 2015, according to the proposed legislation.
It would require a district
to reimburse the State Auditor's Office for the cost of performing the audit.
