Second legislative panel to hear about UA audit

Posted: Updated:

A legislative committee is to hear from a half-dozen current and former University of Arkansas officials about $4 million in deficit spending by the school's fundraising office.

The Performance Review Committee is to convene Tuesday afternoon, when witnesses are to include two campus officials who lost their jobs after the deficit came to light.

Last month, Republican Sen. Bill Sample of Hot Springs used a procedural move to cut off discussion when the topic was before the Audit Committee. A number of committee members complained about the maneuver, which prevented former fundraising division chief Brad Choate and former division budget officer Joy Sharp from testifying.

North Little Rock Republican Sen. Jane English, a co-chair of the Performance Review Committee, says taxpayers want to know how the deficit occurred.
