VIDEO: Audit alleges state of Oklahoma owes U.S. government millions


BOTH MEN FACE CHARGES OF POSSESSION OF A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE AND INTENT TO DISTRIBUTE. WE HAVE LEARNED THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA COULD BE ON THE HOOK FOR MORE THAN $15 MILLION IN FEDERAL FUNDS MISSPENT IN DISASTER RECOVERIES KATIE HIGGINS COMBED THROUGH THAT REPORT TODAY AND LEARNED HOW IT COULD IMPACT CITIES ACROSS GREEN COUNTRY LIKE SAPULPA. SAPULPA FIRE HAD TO DEAL A BRUSH FIRE IN 2012 AND THEY ASKED FOR MORE TRUCKS. THE STATE APROUFED THE REQUEST — APPROVED THE REQUEST AND THEY BOUGHT THE TRUCKS. NOW THEIR PURCHASES ARE BEING QUESTIONED. TALK ABOUT HOW HARD IT IS AND EVERYTHING. FIRE CREWS FROM ALL OVER RESPONDED TO CREEK COUNTY BUT THOUSANDS OF ACRES STILL BURNED. THEY NEED MORE OF THAT AROUND HERE BECAUSE THE FIRE DEPARTMENT IS FAR AND IN- BETWEEN. IT WAS ONE OF MANY NATURAL DISASTERS TO HIT THE STATE. WE QUALIFIED FOR A GRANT BECAUSE OF THEM. IT’S A VERY GOOD THING FOR CREEK COUNTY. THE STATE GAVE DAVID TAYLOR $2.4 MILLION. THE STATE APPROVED HIS PURCHASES. I THINK THE MONEY IS BEING VERY WELL SPENT. BUT IN THIS AUDIT REPORT FILED SEPTEMBER 30TH THE INSPECTOR GENERAL DISAGREES. HE SAYS THE LADDER TRUCKS DON’T MEET REQUIREMENTS BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT USED FIR GRASS FIRES. TAYLOR SAYS HE WILL USE THEM. . EITHER WAY HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND WHY HIS PURCHASES ARE BEING QUESTIONED NOW. I FELT LIKE IF THEY WERE GOING TO DENY THESE REQUESTS, THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE IT IN THE BEGINNING. THE AUDIT SAYS IT’S THE STATE’S FAULT THAT IT FAILED TO NOTICE THE REQUEST MAY NOT COME PLY. THE — COMPLY. THE STATE DISAGREES. THE AUDIT SAYS THEY COULD OWE NEARLY $15 MILLION. THIS ISSUE IS NOT JUST IN SAPULPA. IT HAPPENED ALL OVER THE STATE. AT 10:00 I’LL TELL YOU WHAT THE AUDIT TOLD THE STATE TO DO TO
