State lawmakers OK audit of Los Angeles County Fair operator

State lawmakers OK audit of Los Angeles County Fair operator

A state legislative committee voted unanimously Wednesday to conduct a far-reaching audit of the nonprofit association that runs the Los Angeles County Fair, a review that will focus in part on executive salaries and whether the organization has drifted too far from its tax-exempt mission of promoting local agriculture.

The Joint Legislative Audit Committee action came in response to a November Los Angeles Times investigation that found the head of the L.A. County Fair Assn. had collected nearly $900,000 in total compensation in 2013. That was the fourth straight year the organization had reported financial losses, according to tax filings.
