Carl Olson, chairman of the Fund for Stockowners Rights, said that the lack of pay for investigators is troubling because of the way the board is structured. Its budget is paid for by fees paid its 76,000 licensees in the state. While the state may be in trouble, he said, the board has been sitting on a $25 million bank account. Late last year, the Schwarzenegger borrowed $11 million from this fund to help cover operating expenses in the general fund. It also borrowed money from several other professional boards.
"It's not tax money, it's supposed to be a protected fund," Olson said. "The licensees are being double-taxed, because the money they pay in to be regulated is being appropriated for other purposes."
Olson said his group has been on a campaign to push the board towards a more aggressive stance-in editorials, appearances at board meetings and public clashes with groups like the National Association of Boards of Accountancy. Even while state retirements funds like CALPERS have lost 20 percent of their value due to rampant financial mismanagement across the country. The California Board and other boards of accountancy have not done enough to investigate and require information from the large companies it watches, Olson said.
"As they're dithering around, all of these giant fiascos are going unpunished and encouraged," Olson said. He added: "If you're going to get a CPA who understands what they need to, you need to pay at least $100,000 to get someone who is competent and devoted."

James V. Lacy:Carl Olson, RIP

...
Carl Olson, RIP
...
Conservative activist Carl Laurence Olson, 71, passed away quietly in the San Fernando Valley on August 23 of multiple myeloma, and his smiling face and unabashed zeal for the conservative cause will be missed. I first met Carl when we were both active in conservative and Republican volunteer organizations in California in the 1970s. Carl had an outstanding background he did not brag much about. He was proud to have been a Lt. Commander in the Navy, and would talk about that, and he served in Vietnam, and worked at NBC in Burbank for eight years. But he also graduated from Pomona College and held an MS in Journalism and an MBA from the Ivy League's Columbia University in New York City. Those are pretty big accomplishments, of which he was rather modest.
After serving in the Reagan Administration at the Department of Health and Human Services, Carl came back to California and became active in several nonprofit advocacy organizations he founded or co-founded, including State Department Watch, and the Fund for Stockholders' Rights. He sued the California Automobile Association in a long, drawn out litigation for essentially rigging their board of... Read More
