100 Days…100 Facts: Cutting Legislative Expenses

Republicans Cut Legislative Expenses

Shortly after gaining the majority in the Minnesota House in the 2010 election,
Republicans proved we were serious about controlling state spending. Instead of
allowing for year-round housing reimbursement, the new majority reduced the maximum
housing allowance by 25 percent to $21,600 over the two-year legislative session.
The lodging allowance, which is offered to members who live at least 50 miles from
the Capitol, now equates to $900 a month instead of $1,200 a  month.
