Update on bills impacting state audits

This session, we’ve been writing about three bills related to the State Auditor’s Office. As of Friday’s key fiscal cutoff, two of those bills remain alive while another appears dead this session.

HB 2084, imposing a $500 fine on cities not filing their annual financial reports by October 1, passed the House Finance Committee last week, and the amended version of HB 1008, authorizing state audits of local government data storage and management practices cleared the House Government & Information and Technology Committee. Both bills need to pass the full House by March 11 to remain alive.

HB 2148, allowing audits to be conducted by a private entity and establishing an appeals process for state audits, did not fare as well. That bill did not come up for a vote in the House General Government & Technology Committee and appears dead for the session.
