CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - State investigators are reviewing the West Virginia Water Development Authority’s use of a state-issued purchasing card as part of an investigation into spending practices at the authority.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/2eUOoKv ) reports that the authority turned over its monthly purchasing card statements to the Legislature’s Commission on Special Investigations last week after investigators had requested them.

The state has also requested a receipt for a $300 purchase at Best Buy in 2012 and federal tax forms for three temporary workers.

Investigators are currently reviewing spending and hiring practices at the water authority, which issues bonds that fund water and sewer projects across the state.

The water authority has hired temporary workers and provided them with various perks including paid holidays and the use of state-owned vehicles.
