Feds pick Arizona for audits of stimulus spending

PHOENIX — The federal government has chosen Arizona as one of 16 states it will audit for its use of stimulus money.

The ongoing audits by the General Accounting Office will track the use of the extra federal cash that already is beginning to flow to the state. A nine-member audit team led by Eileen Larence is already in the state and has met with departments that will benefit from the stimulus dollars. Those include the Housing Department, Education Department and the Department of Economic Security.

Larence says a consistent theme auditors have heard is that there is confusion and curiosity about the federal stimulus law’s requirements.

Arizona stands to get about $4.2 billion over the two-year life of the stimulus.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
