According to an audit released last week by State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli, Empire State Development, an arm of the Cuomo administration, didn’t do enough homework before spending hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars on economic development projects, including the Buffalo Billion.

Veteran reporter Jim Heaney, editor and executive director of nonprofit Investigative Post, is widely credited for having broken the Buffalo Billion scandal story.  

Heaney discussed two of the projects included in the audit, Tesla and Riverbend, with Capital Tonight’s Susan Arbetter.

ESD officials say the comptroller’s audit's findings show no company has missed its job creation targets and that many changes have already been made to improve project oversight over the past few years.
