Harmon reflects on bills clearing the General Assembly, looks ahead at what's left to do

03/26/2017 11:30 AM

Following a handful of high profile special examinations by the office of the state auditor lawmakers have passed legislation tweaking some areas of statute to add transparency, and have codified full scale reorganizations in others.

Auditor Mike Harmon, R-Kentucky, sat down on Pure Politics recently to discuss his exam into the Kentucky Horse Park, the University of Louisville Foundation and changes made to area development districts.

In the wide-ranging interview, Harmon detailed issues of poor management, questionable practices, and potential conflicts of interest at the Kentucky Horse Park, which led to the reorganization by Gov. Bevin.

House Bill 403, which codifies that reorganization of the horse park, was signed into law on March 21.

Watch the full interview for Harmon’s take on an extending the TIF district for the UofL Yum Center, and other issues in the General Assembly.
