Pennsylvania’s Auditor General, Eugene DePasquale, says his staff will be hunting for any bad record-keeping in the agency that oversees hunting in the Commonwealth.
DePasquale says his staff will be reviewing the finances of the Pennsylvania Game Commission from 2011 through 2014. He says that while the Game Commission doesn’t get money directly from the state’s general fund, it oversees millions in licenses and other fees. “My team will evaluate the Commission to ensure its resources are being used to benefit the millions of Pennsylvanians who enjoy hunting, trapping, and other outdoor recreational activities.”
He says the commission also oversees almost $30 million in timber sales and oil and gas leases every year.
