Assemblymember Frazier Releases Statement on Caltrans State Audit Report

Submit to FacebookSubmit to TwitterSubmit to LinkedIn

Sacramento, CA Today, Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D – Oakley) released the statement below following the California state auditor’s report on Department of Transportation’s Maintenance Division’s Allocations and Spending for Field Maintenance:

“The state auditor’s recent review of Caltrans’ methodology for finalizing decisions on Maintenance programs exposed more costly problems within the Department. This expensive failure to deliver on their core mission of providing routine road maintenance is just the latest example of the Department’s inability to earn the public’s trust. The auditor’s report found that Caltrans abandoned a sophisticated budget model for allocating field maintenance funding after spending $250 thousand of taxpayer money developing the program. Instead, Caltrans opted to use a simpler model that utilized historical spending. It is unacceptable for a state agency that has a budget over $10 billion to consistently fail to meet objectives, plan for optimal use of resources, or follow up on service calls. California residents deserve better. We can no longer rely on the Department to conduct adequate self-oversight. I hope the severity of these continual problems is recognized by Governor Brown’s Administration and my colleagues in the legislature. By working together, I am optimistic we can find a way to help prevent these incidents from happening again.”

Assemblymember Frazier represents the 11th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Antioch, Bethel Island, Birds Landing, Brentwood, Byron, Collinsville, Discovery Bay, Fairfield, Isleton, Knightsen, Locke, Oakley, Pittsburg (partial), Rio Vista, Suisun City, Travis AFB, Vacaville and Walnut Grove.
