COMPTROLLER'S MEMORANDUM NO. 17 (1982-83)
SUBJECT: TRAVEL COSTS / INTRA-AGENCY SEMINARS
Your attention is directed to the provisions of Section 112.061(3)(b), Florida Statutes, and the Rules of this office concerning such costs. In addition, you are reminded that Section 28 of the 1982-83 Appropriations Act (Chapter 82-215, Laws of Florida) mandates in-state travel costs to be reduced by 15 percent and out-of-state travel by 30 percent.
This office remains of the opinion that adequate facilities which provide for uninterrupted communication and a congenial atmosphere exist within relatively short distances from any state agency headquarters. Consequently only the most pressing reasons will justify the required state purpose for such costs.
