An audit shows the Rockford School District's $8.8 million deficit was the result of an accounting change and higher-than-anticipated salaries. 

The district has enough in cash reserves to cover the deficit. No programs or staff are expected to be cut.

The scathing report on past management of College Illinois was issued Wednesday by the state Auditor General.

A recent audit says Illinois' gun owner registration program creates public safety issues.  But Republican Representative Jim Durkin doesn't expect the legislature to intervene anytime soon. 

State Audit Finds Problems with FOID Program

Apr 6, 2012

Illinois' Firearm Owners Identification program has a heap of problems. That's according to an audit released this week. The state Auditor General says some of those problems put public safety at risk. The report says too often state police don't know when they grant FOID cards if the applicant has a disqualifying mental health condition. The audit also found 70% of revoked registration cards never get back to police. The Illinois State Police says the number of requests for FOID cards has steadily increased over the past few years, but its resources are limited.
