Missouri Gaming Commission member Dan Finney is calling for a state audit of the commission, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Finney wants Missouri Auditor Nicole Galloway to investigate potential problems in the organization that oversees Missouri casinos.
This comes two weeks after David Grothaus, the commission’s executive director, announced his retirement.
“It is an important and complex commission,” Finney told the Post-Dispatch. “It needs to be audited.”
Three audits have been completed on the commission since 2009, finding nothing.
Grothaus recently said that efforts to cut spending have been resisted by other commission members. One proposed cut would have replaced Missouri Highway Patrol officers at casinos with civilians, saving millions, according to Finney.
Galloway has not announced whether she will audit the commission.
