The Government Accountability Office released its audit of Metro Thursday.

Original Post: The spokesman says the GAO may release the audit of Metro and its governance structure to the public Friday, or it may allow Maryland Sen. Barbara Mikulski to review the report for 30 days before making it public. Mikulski requested the audit nearly two years ago after the deadly Red Line train crash.

Since then, the GAO has been looking into the way Metro makes decisions and governs itself. Many prominent local leaders, especially Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, have been calling for sweeping changes in Metro's governance, and this report could provide them with the momentum needed to enact those changes.
