Allen: Reappointment to Committee Tasked With Ensuring Proper Spending of State Funds

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – House Speaker Steven Tilley, R-Perryville, announced that Rep. Sue Allen, R-Town and Country, will once again sit on the House Interim Committee on Budget Transparency. The committee was created last year to further focus on the need to openly scrutinize government spending of taxpayer dollars.

"This is a continuation of the committee that Representative Flanigan and I initiated last year in order to rein in spending and hold our government agencies accountable for every tax dollar they spend,” said Allen. "Proper oversight from the legislature is critical to good government."

The committee, chaired by Rep. Ryan Silvey, R-Kansas City, will work through the interim to study the efficiency and transparency of all branches of government including the possible existence of fraud, mismanagement, corruption, waste, conflict of interests, and the improper expenditure of Government funds in transactions, contracts, and activities by Government officials and employees.
