Gov. Rick Perry is ordering all of the state’s public universities to review how they pay employee benefits after an audit found the University of North Texas misspent $83.5 million in state funds over a decade.
“The inappropriate and inaccurate accounting of taxpayer funds by the University of North Texas is inexcusable,” Rich Parsons, a Perry spokesman, said Wednesday. “Our office is taking steps to determine if other institutions of higher education are using similar methods that could result in the misuse of taxpayer money.”
