  • AOC: You expected our reports to be useful? Pass a law that says so. 2014/04/14
    It’s disturbing that this piece of legislation is even necessary. But it is necessary because the AOC wishes to hide the financial ball to whatever degree they can get away with. AB1773 (Allen) deals with the public contracts and the courts. Among other things, it requires that the AOC present their reports in an electronic […]

    It was a struggle for the AOC to keep what they knew about the so called 70 million dollar revenue shortfall under wraps with a joint legislative audit committee breathing down their neck. Had the information leaked out sooner, it just might have resulted in a unanimous decision to audit the judicial council and the […]
