Taxpayers shouldn’t have the foot the bill for political appointees flying around the country on chartered, private jets unless there are truly no alternatives. This bill would put a permanent stop to wasteful travel practices by senior officials.
While this bill wisely provides some exceptions to the outright ban, like if there’s no commercial flights to a cabinet member’s destination, on balance it’ll make it harder for senior political officials to travel for work.
