Citizens Seek St. Louis Audit
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Activists say they are edging closer to obtaining an audit of St. Louis finances. They believe they have gathered enough signatures for a review. It's part of an effort to shed light on the city's lead-poisoning prevention program. State officials say the audit could cost the city one million dollars. Don Fitz with the Gateway Green Alliance says questions remain about how and where the city has spent money on lead poisoning prevention. The city says it has accounted for every dime of funding related to those programs.
