Although the average number of patients and residents decreased over the past five years, the total cost to maintain Iowa’s six state-run institutions has increased according to a new report from the Iowa State Auditor’s Office.
On this week’s edition of the On Iowa Politics Podcast: Iowa school boards banning books, U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley's naughty list, Iowa State Auditor Rob Sand blinks, and Iowa Sen. Roby Smith runs for state treasurer.
A report released Wednesday by the state auditor’s office found the insufficient record-keeping practices at the Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office resulted in some inmates serving more or less time in jail than required.
State Auditor Rob Sand released a report Thursday showing overpayments to Timon Oujiri, who was dismissed by Gov. Kim Reynolds in May after four years leading the state's nursing home for Iowa veterans and their spouses.
