Two legislative panels sunk their teeth into the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. on Thursday. A state audit has revealed evidence that WEDC gave taxpayer money to ineligible recipients and did not properly track loans and grants.

The Joint Audit committee grilled WEDC executives for more than four hours.
