Controller audit of L.A. community colleges

A state audit of cam­pus con­struc­tion at the Los Angeles Com­munity Col­lege Dis­trict has found $140 mil­lion in ques­tion­able spend­ing, in­clud­ing at least $28 mil­lion sunk in­to pro­jects that were later aban­doned be­cause of poor plan­ning.

In the audit re­leased Wed­nes­day, state Con­trol­ler John Chi­ang chal­lenged the dis­trict’s use of voter-ap­proved con­struc­tion money to pay for pub­lic re­la­tions, pub­lic art and oth­er pur­poses he deemed in­ap­pro­pri­ate.
