TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A legislative committee says internal legislator requests for audits of various state interests are being delayed because of a lack of auditors.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that 25 legislator requests for internal audits have been delayed because the auditors don't have the resources to get to them.
One factor in the slowdown is a 2013 law that required the Division of Legislative Post Audit to audit three school districts per year for the next three years.
The auditing division has less than 25 employees, although it has been authorized to add three more this year.
The requested audits that are awaiting action include the proposed sale of state buildings, the cost effectiveness of the death penalty in Kansas and the Kansas Board of Cosmetology.
