Report: Millions Wasted on Gov't Travel
WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal employees wasted at least $146 million over a one-year period on business- and first-class airline tickets, in some cases simply because they felt entitled to the perk, congressional investigators say.
The review of travel spending by more than a dozen agencies from July 1, 2005, to June 30, 2006, found 67 percent of premium-class travel by executives or their employees, worth at least $146 million, was unauthorized or otherwise unjustified.
Among the worst offenders: the State Department, whose employees typically fly abroad on official business.
HOW MUCH ARE THE CARBON OFFSET CREDITS GOING TO COST THE U.S. TAXPAYERS????? THE GOVERNMENT SERVES ITS OWN SELF INTERESTS, NOT THE U.S. CITIZENS WHO FOOT THE BILL.
