A new state review rates the performance of the Missouri Lottery Commission as "good."
State Auditor Tom Schweich released his office's findings Tuesday and says the lottery has been run well.

The audit did question the lottery for renegotiating and entering into long-term contracts instead of rebidding contracts for services. It also noted that in 2010 and 2011, about $4.9 million of expenses for promotional items, event sponsorships and payments to advertising agencies were not included when advertising costs were reported to lawmakers.

The Missouri State Auditor released a detailed audit Wednesday on public defender offices and their ability to handle new clients.

Missouri State Auditor Tom Schweich says the way in which the public defender system keep track of its caseloads is outdated. In the audit, Schweich raised concerns regarding the system’s reliance on national caseload standards dating back to 1973. He is deeming the so called “caseload crisis” to be based on “unsupported assumptions.”

Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich (R) has released a letter he sent this week to Governor Jay Nixon (D) expressing concerns over his administration’s handling of a contract for a St. Louis County license fee office.

The authority of the Missouri auditor to write financial estimates for ballot initiatives is under scrutiny by the state Supreme Court.

The high court heard arguments Monday on whether a law directing the auditor to prepare the financial estimates exceeds the limits of the auditor's authority spelled out in the Missouri Constitution.
