Steve Shadley, Capital Public Radio
In an interview with Capital Public Radio's Steve Shadley, California Inspector General Laura Chick talks about Federal Economic Stimulus Package and her new job.
So far, California has received nearly 14-billion dollars from the Federal Economic Stimulus Package. And more is on the way. In fact, California eventually expects to get a total of about 48-billion dollars – more than any other state. So who’s going to oversee how all that money is spent? Her name is Laura Chick. And over the last eight years she gained a reputation as a feisty corruption fighter while city controller for Los Angeles. In about a week (4/27), she’ll hold the newly created position of State Inspector General. Chick recently sat down with Steve Shadley (SHAD-lee) at the Governor’s office in Sacramento to talk about her new job.
