The Indiana Budget Committee unanimously passed a resolution today calling for an independent audit of the Department of Revenue.
The move comes one week after the Department announced a programming error caused it to retain more than $200 million that should have been distributed to counties across the state. The money has since been given to the counties with interest.
Governor Mitch Daniels also ordered an independent audit last week after the error was announced. The Budget Committee, which is made up of Republican and Democratic legislators, also decided to hold a special meeting next month to address the issue further. They plan to gather information on specifically what the audit should cover and which company should be hired to conduct the review.
