Lansing, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – 110th District State Representative Scott Dianda has introduced a resolution calling on Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette to investigate the state Senate involvement in a Lansing office building.

Dianda says he wants an investigation into possible waste, fraud and abuse of power by former Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville and the Senate Business Office regarding the lease of space for Senate offices in the Capitol View Building.

The Calumet Democrat says the Senate will spend over $130 million of taxpayer money to pay for new offices when they could have renovated the state-owned building that now houses their offices instead.

Dianda calls the move a “shameful waste of taxpayer money and that there are just too many issues in the sale to allow it to go ahead without looking into the details.
