LEGISLATIVE TRAVEL AND LIVING EXPENSES. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. This measure would eliminate the payment of living and travel expenses for state legislators unless those expenses were incurred in connection with travel to or from or attendance at a meeting of a committee of which the legislator is a member, or a meeting, conference, or other legislative function or responsibility as authorized by legislative rules held outside of Sacramento at a location at least 20 miles from his or her place of residence. Measure becomes operative December 2, 1996, and applies to expenses incurred on or after such date. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This measure would reduce payments for living expenses budgeted by the Legislature for its members by approximately $2.7 million annually, which could be used to offset costs elsewhere in the Legislature's budget.
