SC treasurer using Freedom of Information law to seek answers from SCDOT

September 21, 2011


State Treasurer Curtis Loftis says the cash-starved state Department of Transportation is dragging its feet on providing him information, so he’s embraced a tool typically used by news organizations in an effort to compel the agency to respond.


Loftis on Wednesday filed a formal Freedom of Information Act request with DOT seeking the information, including detailed monthly analysis of overdue payments, other payment delay information dating back to January 2010 and a cash flow forecast.
