One thought on “Are higher per diems for lawmakers ‘outrageous,’ or long overdue?

  1. If anything- they should be required to submit receipts for funds used. I’m under the impression (admittedly from a google search for various wi gov department docs) that receipt/invoice submission for expenses is not a requirement unless the cost is over the per diem, therefore every trip will be billed at the maximum per diem at a minimum. The rest seems stolen from the tax payers. Hope I’m wrong, but I think any personal benefit is outrageous- would rather have my $ go to everyone.
