Three MnDOT supervisors have been reprimanded for not keeping track of the emergency manager who didn't return when the I-35W bridge collapsed. Sonia Morphew Pitt was fired last month. One of her supervisors was suspended for three days without pay. Another was given a written reprimand for not watching her expense reports better. A third man who said he didn't notice she was gone until a week after the bridge collapse was verbally reprimanded. State Senate Assistant Majority Leader Tarryl Clark said lawmakers need to make sure this is an isolated case and not an indicator of a larger problem. Clark said there are a number of legislators on both sides of the aisle who are concerned about bureaucratic transparency and making sure those in government are not taking personal advantage of their public position. She said there are no official legislative overtures at this time.
