Secretary of State Wants More Oversight

Secretary of State Tom Schedler technically has about 700 employees, but he has no control over more than half of them.  Registrars of voters and their employees are paid through the Secretary of State's Office.  And that's concerning Schedler because he's paying the bills but doesn't know what's going on in the field.  Schedler told a legislative committee that he's been trying to get the registrars to develop such things as time and attendance policies. He said he's been ignored.  Schedler said one day a problem is going to come up and he's going to get the blame.  He said as chief elections officer he has not control over the registrars.
