Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Local Government Travel Expense Control Act. Provides that school districts and non-home rule units of local government shall, by resolution or ordinance, regulate travel, meal, and lodging expenses of officers and employees including: (1) the types of official business for which travel, meal, and lodging expenses are allowable; (2) maximum allowable reimbursement for travel, meal, and lodging expenses; and (3) a standardized form for submission of travel, meal, and lodging expenses. Provides that all travel, meal, and lodging expenses may only be approved after specified documentation has been submitted and the expenses are approved by a roll call vote. Prohibits reimbursing entertainment expenses.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: Provides that the Act also applies to community college districts (currently, school districts and non-home rule units of local government); and that expenses officers or employees expend that exceed the maximum allowable expenses, and any expenses for members of the governing board or corporate authorities, must be approved by the governing board or corporate authorities (currently, all expenses must be approved by the board or corporate authorities).
