    Calif. Gov. Brown Bans Non-Essential Travel

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. /California Newswire/ -– Taking further action to save taxpayer dollars and cut government waste, Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. today issued a sweeping Executive Order to halt state employee travel that is not mission-critical. This Executive Order comes one week after the Governor ordered state agencies and departments to recover millions of dollars in uncollected salary and travel advances.

    “Our fiscal challenges demand that we take a much closer look at how taxpayer dollars are being spent within state government,” Brown said. “Now is not the time to attend conferences, travel to meetings or take out-of-state field trips and this Executive Order puts an end to it.”

    Under the Governor’s Executive Order, no travel is permitted – either in-state or out-of-state – unless it is mission-critical or there is no cost to the state.

    All in-state mission-critical travel must be approved by agency secretaries or department directors who do not report to an agency secretary and all out-of-state travel must be approved by the Governor’s office.

    Permitted travel must be directly related to enforcement responsibilities, audits, revenue collection or other duties required by statute, contract or executive directive. Travel to attend conferences, networking opportunities, professional development courses, continuing education classes, meetings that can be conducted by video or teleconference or other non-essential events will not be permitted or paid for by the state

    I agree it's a good idea. But it came from a democrat? What's up with that? [wink]..

    Democratic/Liberals control deficits better then Republican ones (leaders being the singular heads of a government rather then the legislature) generally

    I disagree. They both spend like drunken sailors. Don't give credit to the democrat. Give the credit to the people who are lighting matches and giving him a hotfoot over spending. LOL.
