Cali. Officials Bill Taxpayers $80K For Travel, Defy Gov. Brown’s Travel Ban


California Veterans Affairs officials are billing taxpayers for the officials' travel, KOVR revealed in a damaging report Monday.  This goes directly against Gov. Jerry Brown's (D.) ban on nonessential travel.

The officials' travel fees have accumulated to $82,000 over 18 months since Brown's ban.

The officials have no plan to refund taxpayers or eliminate state funded-trips, according to KOVR, despite being notified about the travel expenses.
