Audit: Ky. state airplanes need stricter oversight

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A new audit says Kentucky needs stricter policies to oversee the use of its airplane fleet.

The report was released Wednesday by state Auditor Crit Luallen. It says auditors reviewing state flights during the 2007 fiscal year could not find the purpose of 15 out of 39 flights. They lacked proper documentation.

According to the audit, the state agrees with the findings and is taking steps to improve.

Kentucky's Department of Aviation owns six aircraft, while the state Justice Cabinet, the Department for Natural Resources and the Department of Agriculture own a combined 10.
