HARRISBURG, Pa. -- State Auditor General Eugene DePasquale says he'll announce the results of several major audits this year and prepare for several others.

Completed audits of the Lancaster County School District, PennDOT, and the state's workforce development program will all be discussed later this year.

With the help of the legalization and taxation of marijuana, DePasquale plans to tackle the opioid epidemic this year.

The medical community has found marijuana can help reduce opioid addiction,” he said noting that the opioid crisis is affecting children.
