State, city comptrollers to audit MTA

State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli and City Comptroller John Liu will conduct an audit of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority that will focus on New York City subway maintenance and service disruptions.

Several state assemblymen have demanded a probe of the MTA to determine whether it is wasting money. According to DiNapoli, service interruptions on the Long Island Rail Road are not part of the current audit, but may be considered in the future.

DiNapoli says other audits are examining LIRR overtime costs, security programs and crossing safety.

The audit of the subway system is expected to take several months.

To see an extended interview with DiNapoli, go to Channel 612 on your iO digital cable box and select iO Extra.
