March 19, 2008
Project ID: 08A3008A000
The San Francisco Municipal Railway (Muni) is the city's public transit agency, which receives grants from the Federal Transit Administration. In a letter dated January 31, 2008, Senator Tom Coburn-Ranking Member of the Senate Subcommittee on Federal Financial Management, Government Information, Federal Services, and International Security-requested that we review the San Francisco city government's use of Federal transit funds appropriated for Muni. Consistent with the Senator's request, our objective is to determine if the city is using those funds for unauthorized purposes, including directly paying for lobbying activities or replacing city transportation funds diverted for lobbying activities.
