Controller John Chiang
An audit by the Senate Office of Oversight and Outcomes is placing blame on the California State Controller’s Office for “chronic mismanagement” of the state’s payroll system.
State Controller John Chiang said in a pair of audits released on Thursday that Hercules has the worst set of accounting records he has ever seen and may have to pay back $2 million in federal and state grants because of poor documentation.
Just a week after Gov. Jerry Brown made his pitch for tax hikes and more spending cuts, the state controller is reporting that California is collecting less revenue than the governor projected.
California’s State Controller John Chiang has released another report showing the high salaries of some state employees.
State Controller John Chiang said Thursday he will withhold lawmakers’ pay starting June 16 unless they have passed a balanced budget by then.
Chiang said he would conduct the review of nearly two-dozen agencies, including those in San Jose, Fremont, Richmond, Pittsburg and Hercules.
The state controller has unveiled a website that lists salaries, pensions and other compensation for more than 594,000 city and county employees throughout California.
