New Democrat MLA expenses posted on-line

Posted in:

VICTORIA – The New Democrat Official Opposition caucus has posted detailed members’ expense reports for the month of July.

These reports provide a summary of travel costs that have been claimed and processed on a monthly basis while members are working outside of their constituencies. They will be posted each month going forward.

Caucus chair Shane Simpson wrote to the Legislative Assembly Management Committee in July to advise them of the New Democrat caucus plans, saying that his caucus believes that it is important to be accountable about the use of public funds, including being as open and transparent as possible about MLA expenses.

The New Democrat caucus has encouraged the Legislative Assembly to support more detailed routine disclosure of travel expenses for all MLAs and cabinet ministers.
