OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Bobby Cleveland released the following statement today after hearing Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) Director Stan Florence had requested an agency performance audit by the State Auditor and Inspector.

“I’m relieved to hear Director Florence asked State Auditor Gary Jones for help in this area,” said Cleveland, R-Slaughterville. “It’s clear he wants to improve his agency, and I’m happy he’s taking immediate steps to do so.

“After reviewing numerous complaints from OSBI employees, I’m confident Jones will find areas in need of improvement. The agency will receive nearly $12 million this year from the state of Oklahoma, and we need to ensure our citizens are seeing a good return on investment. The performance audit is an important step in the right direction, and I’ll be anxiously awaiting the results.”
