Background
In 1955, the Legislature created the Joint Legislative Audit Committee and the Office of the Auditor General (OAG) for the purpose of examination and reporting independent of the information provided by an executive body (Chapter 1699, Statutes of 1955). The Auditor General reports on the financial and performance condition of state funds via investigative audits. The Committee appointed the Auditor General and staff, directed the OAG to investigate certain bodies, and determined whether program objectives had been achieved or funds had been spent appropriately.
