Senate approves Mautino as Auditor General

The Senate voted unanimously Oct. 20 to approve the appointment of
State Rep. Frank Mautino to serve as the next Auditor General of Illinois.
Mautino will replace Bill Holland, who has served as Auditor General since
1992, at the end of this year.


The Auditor General oversees state agency budgets and reviews the
s financial records, issuing about 150 audits of targeted agencies
every year. Holland oversaw the high-profile 2005 audit of the Department of
Central Management Services that eventually led to former Gov. Rod Blagojevich
impeachment, and the 2014 audit of former Gov. Pat Quinn
controversial $54 million Neighborhood Recovery Initiative.


The bipartisan Legislative Audit Commission had recommended
Mautino for the post after a nationwide search.
