The Role of the Auditor General in the Legislative Branch
A dinner was held to introduce the 1965-1966 Michigan Legislature to the Citizens Research Council of Michigan. The keynote speaker was Karney A. Brasfield, of Washington, D.C., who discussed the role of the auditor general in the legislative branch. This new constitutional office offered the legislature a mechanism with tremendous potential for improving its oversight of its policy decisions and the effectiveness of their execution by the departments and agencies of the state. For that reason, Mr. Brasfield’s comments were considered to be especially timely and pertinent.
