MODOT Gets Favorable Audit Report

MO-DOT says the review is evidence of responsible budget managing. Analysts say a ballot defeat in August for a transportation tax increase was evidence of MO-DOT's credibility problem with the public.

So department officials were quick to tout the audit's positive findings.
