|Subject:||Government Reform - Per Diem Receipts|
|I will soon be introducing legislation reforming per diems by requiring receipts for reimbursement.
There have many reported instances of high per diem claims. In 2010, the Senate Government Management and Cost Reduction Commission recommended “a comprehensive review of the current per diem reimbursement system for legislators to determine if a receipt-based system would result in taxpayer savings.” My legislation would provide for transparency and consistency by simply requiring receipts in order to obtain reimbursement. The reimbursement level would remain at the same rate set by the IRS.
If you have any questions regarding this legislation, please contact Nate Silcox of my staff at 717-787-6538 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Introduced as SB1291
