Legislative panel rejects request for audit of state health agency’s COVID-19 testing contracts

Colorado Politics: An audit request from Sen. Rob Woodward, R-Loveland, for two contracts between the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and two labs handling COVID-19 testing was turned down on a 4-4 tie by the Legislative Audit Committee.

The committee is half Democrat, half Republican, hence the potential for a tie vote. The panel killed the proposal along party lines, with Democrats balking at the request and Republicans supporting it. 

Woodward first submitted the audit request to the committee last July but withdrew it in October after facing a potential “no” vote.
