Spotsy GOP Press Release on the VDOT Audit

VDOT Audit Exposes Democrats’ Failure

The announcement that Governor McDonnell’s audit of VDOT revealed nearly $1 billion in unspent funds revealed the failure of the previous Administration in Richmond, Chairman Steve Thomas said today.

“The VDOT audit showed that former Governor Tim Kaine was incredibly lax in getting transportation funding out of the pipeline and onto Virginia roads,” said Thomas. “For Kaine and his fellow Democrats to demand tax increases while holding back nearly one dollar in three for roads is unconscionable. This incompetence scandal is the largest in the history of Virginia.”

Thomas noted that local Democrat politicians were also swept up in the same embarrassing tax-hike rhetoric.

“We are disappointed in the lack of creativity of local politicians like Sen. Edd Houck (D- Spotsylvania)– who repeatedly voted for tax increases in the State Senate and just last year was quoted as saying the GA better get on board with gas tax hikes – and Supervisor Hap Connors (D-Chancellor), who demanded a gas-tax hike just this week,” said Thomas. “It must be embarrassing for them to see that the largest impediment to improving our roads wasn’t the taxpayers; it was the bureaucrats. Next time, instead of reflexively pushing tax hikes and bigger government on the people of the region, perhaps they might consider finding innovative ways to make government work less costly and more efficiently.”

Another local Republican was particularly critical of Houck.

“Edd Houck’s record on taxes is over the top, even for Democrats,” noted D.J. McGuire, former Republican nominee for Supervisor in Spotsylvania. “He actually voted for thirteen different tax increases in one day.”

McGuire’s comment was a reference to June 24, 2008, when Houck voted in favor of three bills that included sixteen tax increases in total (three of which were duplicates).

“Creigh Deeds cast the same votes Houck did, and we saw what happened to him,” noted Thomas. “We look forward to the discussion with Houck and Connors, who always look to take more money from the taxpayers first and deal with waste in Richmond and the Holbert Building last.”

Resolution: In support of Arizona and PWC on Illegal Immigration

RESOLUTION OF THE Spotsylvania Republican Committee of Virginia
IN SUPPORT OF SB 1070 IN
THE SOVREIGN STATE OF ARIZONA

Let it be known, the Spotsylvania County Republican Committee in the great Commonwealth of Virginia, recognizes, appreciates and supports the many contributions of immigrants who migrated legally to our great nation throughout its history, and we advocate for all laws that encourage their noble dream of liberty and freedom; we therefore declare our support for the following resolution;

Whereas the United States federal government has failed to exercise its Constitutional role to enforce "an uniform Rule of Naturalization" via its refusal to enforce the law at the border,

Whereas, as described by federal law, Sec. 103. [8 U.S.C. § 1103,] “An actual or imminent mass influx of illegal aliens arriving off the coast of the United States, or near a land border, presents urgent circumstances requiring an immediate federal response” exists in the State of Arizona,

Whereas the federal government has failed to exercise its powers and duties as prescribed in laws duly passed by Congress to “control and guard the boundaries and borders of the United States against the illegal entry of aliens,” and to achieve “operational control” on the border, defined by federal law to mean “the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband,”

Whereas the dangers represented by this manner of unchecked influx of illegal aliens threaten not only the lives and liberties of the citizens of Arizona, but of all other free peoples and sovereign states,

Whereas Section 274(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), as amended in 1986, authorizes “...all other officers whose duty it is to enforce criminal laws,” to arrest persons for smuggling, harboring or transporting illegal aliens,” and that federal courts have repeatedly affirmed since 1984 that local police may inquire into immigration violations in the course of a routine stop,

Whereas numerous reports have emerged of international terrorist organizations, including but not limited to Hezbollah and Al-Qaida, taking advantage of the current lack of federal enforcement to infiltrate the United States with operatives,

Whereas the People of the State of Arizona have passed a law, Arizona SB1070, to “discourage and deter the unlawful entry and presence of aliens and economic activity by persons unlawfully present in the United States” by authorizing state resources to assist in enforcing federal law,

Whereas on April 3, 2002, Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel (OFC) legal opinion, affirms state and local police officers have the inherent authority to arrest illegal aliens and transfer them to federal custody,

Whereas the State of Arizona’s law SB1070 is a Constitutional example of concurrent jurisdiction of state and federal law, is fully compliant with existing federal law and court decisions and provides for reasonable actions under probable cause and without prejudice, and

Whereas Virginia’s own Prince William County Board of Supervisors Chairman, Corey Stewart, has endorsed SB1070 and has noted that Arizona’s effort is very similar to parts of his successful efforts on the same issue in his own county,

Therefore, be it resolved that the Spotsylvania Republican Committee in the Commonwealth of Virginia

Supports the rights of the People of Arizona to protect and preserve both their liberty and the rights of all U.S. citizens, through laws such as Arizona SB1070 and all other actions, as the State of Arizona should undertake to protect the safety and property of its legal immigrants and citizens,

Supports, efforts to enact and enforce similar laws throughout Virginia to protect our citizens and pressure the federal government to meet its obligations under the Constitution and federal laws and

Thanks our Virginia Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli, for coming to the defense of Arizona and the Commonwealth of Virginia in federal court,

Signed this day of _________________, 2010

County Committee of the Republican Party of Spotsylvania, Virginia

This is what a competent State Senator can do.

The statement of Sen. Mark Obenshain on the VDOT audit:

VDOT Audit Turns Up $1.45 Billion!


The results of the VDOT audit are in, and it turned up something interesting -- money.

The audit of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) turned up examples of fiscal mismanagement, of poorly allocated resources, and of inefficient practices, as expected. But I don't think anyone expected it to turn up $1.45 billion in unspent funds within the Six-Year Improvement Plan.

Wasn't it just a year and a half ago that Tim Kaine closed down the rest areas because we couldn't come up with the $9 million necessary to keep them up and running?

I've been calling for an outside performance audit for two years, and I haven't been alone in this effort. My friend and colleague Del. Todd Gilbert has been with me each step of the way, and Delegates Glenn Oder and Scott Lingamfelter have pushed external audits as well. Each time, VDOT pushed back, saying that their own routine internal audits were more than sufficient.

So much for that idea.

According to a comprehensive financial and performance audit conducted by Cherry, Bekaert and Holland, LLP, VDOT is sitting on almost a billion and a half dollars in unexpended funds even as roads went unplowed and bridges unrepaired, the Department pled poverty, and Democrats called for tax increases for transportation. This is completely unacceptable. As Governor McDonnell put it, "Money has been sitting in the state's wallet while Virginians have been sitting in traffic."

How could this happen? In a word, bureaucracy. Or, in two words, fiscal mismanagement.

Every year, roughly $230 million allocated to specific projects is unspent when those projects are canceled or become inactive, but often, rather than using the freed up monies for other transportation projects, the funds just lie in dormant accounts.

Some time back, when the federal government delayed passage of a federal transportation bill, the Commonwealth set aside $524 million as a federal revenue reserve so that all projects would not grind to a halt should federal funding dry up. That may have been a prudent move at the time, but we have a transportation bill now, yet over half a billion dollars remained off limits, essentially forgotten.

Of course, it makes sense to set aside money for a rainy day, which is why Virginia has a separate reserve fund of long standing as well. But whereas most states maintain a sixty day reserve, Virginia's covers five and a half months, and hasn't been touched. That's hard to justify when essential transportation projects are being put on hold. What's a reserve fund for, if not for times like these? Virginia will now be moving into line with other states, drawing down to a sixty day reserve.

Finally, we have at least $400 million in unused toll credits, which is just money going to waste. These toll credits are not cash, but they may be the next best thing. Normally, when the federal government provides transportation funding, Virginia must make a 20% match. These accrued credits, however, can be used instead - and we haven't been doing it. For several years, Virginia has been paying the federal government when it could have been simply cashing in its toll credits.

All told, we're talking about $1.45 billion in money we essentially didn't know we had, in a Department with a $3.3 billion annual budget. That's great news, but the fact that it took an audit to tell VDOT that this money existed and could be redeployed is utterly unacceptable.

Thankfully, the McDonnell administration agrees, and his Secretary of Transportation, Sean Connaughton, is working to implement the fifty recommendations in the newly available audit so that we never have a repeat of this fiscal mismanagement. Full implementation of a remedial action plan is anticipated within forty-five days, and it can't come a moment too soon.

Incredibly, $877 million was left unspent during the last two years, and six months into Fiscal Year 2010, we had only obligated a mere 5% of the federal transportation dollars available to us under the stimulus package, a delay I called inexcusable at the time. And I had no idea-no one did-how far behind we truly were. Like the Governor said, Virginians are sitting in traffic while this money sits in the government's coffers, but that is about to change, and another $800-900 million will be committed to specific projects by the end of the year.

We need to do this right. We can't go on an indiscriminate spending spree because we found money we didn't know we had, and we should never push money out the door just because it's available. We owe the taxpayers a far more prudent policy than that.

But the projects aren't hard to find. Anyone who has spent any time on Virginia's roads know that maintenance projects have suffered and new construction is sorely needed. The results of this audit provide a way forward, not just identifying some crucial funds for the present, but charting a more prudent path for the future.

This isn't the end by any stretch of the imagination. I believe that more work remains to be done in fully accounting for operational practices within VDOT, as this was more of a financial than a performance audit, though it does provided many useful recommendations in both areas. This is, however, a huge step forward.

An outside audit of VDOT was a long time in coming, but the real challenge is ahead. It's time to make VDOT more efficient, more cost-effective, and more accountable. And now we have a roadmap.

With best regards,


Mark D. Obenshain
Virginia State Senator

VDOT audit finds nearly $1 billion stuck in the pipeline

Yes, that's billion . . . with a "b" (Richmond Times-Dispatch):

The Virginia Department of Transportation left more than $900 million in maintenance funds unspent over the last two fiscal years because of "burdensome internal processes and financial controls," an independent audit of the state highway department shows.

The audit by the Richmond-based accounting firm of Cherry Bekaert & Holland found that about $390 million went unspent in fiscal 2009 and $529 million in fiscal 2010.

Total unspent balance: $919 million - or nearly 30% of VDOT's entire annual budget (VA DOB).

This comes, of course, as Kaine was closing down rest stops and screaming for tax increases - ostensibly for roads.

Meanwhile, as the RTD story makes clear, most of the backlog was during the Kaine years.

According to Transportation Secretary Sean Connaughton, the Six-Year road plan could get a extra $1.5 billion (the above money included) as a result of what was found in the audit.

Cantor reiterates opposition to tax hikes

Date: September 13, 2010 Contact: Michael Lowry

Office: (804) 358-6160 Cell: (804) 928-1655

Congressman Eric Cantor Reaffirms His Opposition to ANY Tax Increases

Richmond, VA – Congressman Eric Cantor today released the following statement addressing his opposition to the Obama-Pelosi tax increases that are scheduled to take effect on January 1:

“I will do everything in my power to stop President Obama and Speaker Pelosi from raising taxes on working families, small business people, and investors. Raising taxes in this environment is a non-starter for me and millions of American small business people who are struggling to keep the lights on and meet their payroll obligations.

"Despite the clear efforts by President Obama and Speaker Pelosi to increase taxes on hard working Americans, there is ample evidence that a bipartisan majority of the House would support a clean bill to ensure that no American faces a tax increase in this difficult economic environment. I am calling on Speaker Pelosi and President Obama to allow all members of the House – Republican and Democrat – to vote on legislation that would prevent tax increases for every American."

"It will make national news"

That's how Transportation Secretary Sean Connaughton described the upcoming report on VDOT - and he didn't mean it in a good way (WTOP via Tertium Quids):
"I will just tell you that in two weeks when we announce (the audit), it will make national news as to what we found," Connaughton said during a business event in Northern Virginia Wednesday.

"The biggest issue we are looking at is financial management -- money that was in the pipeline. We had some indications that we were facing some challenges when we took office, and the auditors confirmed that those concerns were valid."

Without spelling out the specifics of the audit, Connaughton talked about personnel and policy changes that are on the way.

"We are going to be making some major changes in how we do business -- particularly at VDOT," he says.
In other words, as now-Senator Mark Warner and now-DNC Chair Tim Kaine were both screaming for higher taxes "for roads," the folks they entrusted to put down the asphalt had so much trouble watching the money they actually had that it will reverberate from coast to coast.

The audit report is scheduled to be released on the 22nd.
