  1. Greg wants to ban “payment of any stationary fund or allowance of any kind other than salary”.

    What kind of money are we talking about here?

    Do Federal legislator’s get a per diem like State legislator’s?

    I don’t know anything about stationary funds or allowances, and thought you might share your knowledge on this issue.

    Thanks.

    1. My knowledge is not extremely current so that’s why I didn’t specify, but yes, they have coverage for these expenses.

      State legislatures — that varies by state.
