State Auditor Nicole Galloway is calling for increased regulation for Missouri’s transportation development districts.

An audit, released Monday, found a lack of transparency and self-dealing practices by the districts led to $1 billion dollars in tax payer debt.

“Taxpayers don’t even know they are on the hook for this money,” Galloway says. “They’re charged these sales taxes that go to pay off these projects and there is about $1 billion dollars in debt.”
