Missouri's auditor says he'll file a bill giving him more power to investigate state agencies.
Wrap: Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich Tuesday blasted the state's main banking advocate, the Missouri Bankers Association.
Schweich says the M-B-A is trying to shield themselves after an audit of the state Division of Finance revealed "critical oversight" of some banking practices.
|Description: "Missouri Bankers Association, what is it that you are hiding from the people of Missouri? Why are you trying to shut down this audit? Why are showing disdain for accountability unlike anything I've ever seen in my ten months as auditor?"|
An M-B-A lawsuit, Schweich says, is preventing him from fully investigating the Division of Finance.
Schweich says state representative Sue Allen will file legislation letting him ignore the M-B-A lawsuit.
