Auditor to release report on Missouri housing commission

Wednesday, June 24, 2009 | 12:17 p.m. CDT

JEFFERSON CITY — A state agency that helps finance low-income housing developments is coming under more scrutiny.

Missouri State Auditor Susan Montee planned to release a report Wednesday taking issue with management practices of the Missouri Housing Development Commission.

State Treasurer Clint Zweifel is the commission's new chairman. Zweifel proposed new ethics policies for the agency Tuesday, citing what he called past failures to address conflicts of interest.

Housing Commission executive director Pete Ramsel has confirmed being interviewed by the FBI as part of an investigation of Missouri's low-income housing developments. Ramsel said the investigation was not focused on him personally.
