Justice says some information given by auditors is wrong

The Register-Herald

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Gov. Jim Justice said Sunday evening that some of the information the Legislative Auditor’s Office shared Sunday with members of the Post Audits Subcommittee was incorrect.

“The Legislative Auditor today released their report on the audit of the RISE WV Program,” Justice said in a press statement. “The report concluded that ‘the Legislative Auditor questions whether any individual homeowner has received full assistance from the Rise West Virginia flood recovery program.’

“The Legislative Auditor got it wrong. The Justice Administration stands by the numbers released Friday by the National Guard, which show that out of the 451 cases in the program, 324 have been reviewed, and 106 assigned. As of today, 18 families have been handed keys to new homes, and five are ready for final inspection this week.”
