Audit: Calif. rail group improperly documenting payments

LOS ANGELES — According to a state audit released on Wednesday of the California High-Speed Rail Authority’s $8.9 million in payments reviewed by the office of Inspector General Laura Chick, approximately $3.44 million, or 38 percent, was paid out in May and June without records showing how many hours the consultants had worked, the Los Angeles Times reports. In addition, the Authority spent $90,000 more for potentially duplicative public relations efforts.
