Montana tribe can't account for $14.5 million

BILLINGS, Mont. — Montana's Crow Indian Tribe has been unable to account for $14.5 million it received for transportation programs, marking the second time in less than two years the tribe has been faulted for its handling of federal grant money, government investigators disclosed Monday.

The finding from the U.S. Interior Department's Office of Inspector General resulted from an audit of a contract that provided federal money to build and maintain highways, bridges and transit facilities on the tribe's southeastern Montana reservation.
