Travel Policies for State Officials

Political Functions

From time to time state officials, both elected and appointed, attend functions or meetings that are political in nature. The following policies are intended to be guidelines for the payment from state funds for travel and subsistence costs surrounding the attendance of state public officials at political functions or meetings:

 

Travel Related to a Political Function

No state funds may be used to pay travel and/or subsistence costs for a state official while attending a political function or meeting. In the event a state-owned aircraft is used, the reimbursement rate will be the actual operating cost rate per flight hour. If a state-owned vehicle is used, the reimbursement rate to the state will be the motor pool rate.

 

Travel Related to Official State Business that includes Political Functions

If a trip includes both official state business and political functions or meetings, state funds may be used to pay up to one-half of the travel and/or subsistence costs. In the event that a state-owned aircraft is used, the cost to the state will be charged at the regular rate per flight hour and the charge to a non-state source will be at the actual operating cost rate per flight hour. If a state-owned vehicle is used, the reimbursement rate to the state will be the motor pool rate.

 

All Other Travel

Travel reimbursement policies and regulations for all other travel for state officials is the same as for state employees.
