Description

Alisa Ulferts of the St. Petersburg Times looked deeper into the travel expenses of state legislators, only to find out that the Senate President, Jim King, as well as other lawmakers were using state planes for unofficial business. In an effort to save their own personal time and money, lawmakers used the planes for vacation and commutes between the capital city and home district. They did all of this despite the specific state law which forbids the use of state planes for anything other than official state business, as well as excluding the legislators from using the planes to commute.
