This bill requires the State Auditor to annually report, in writing, to the Legislature on unspent State account balances. The report, to be submitted by December 31st of each year, must, in addition to containing any other information the State Auditor deems advisable: · identify the amount of unspent funds present in each State agency account; · contain a summary of the total amounts of unspent funds by each State agency, and those amounts unspent by fund type; and · contain information and recommendations for addressing the accumulation of those funds in each State agency to avoid waste, mismanagement, inefficiency, or fraud; The intention of this legislation is to increase transparency to identify which accounts have funds sitting unnecessarily idle.
