Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – 110th District State Representative Scott Dianda has proposed legislation regulating out-of-state travel and the conducting of business by employees of the Michigan Department of Transportation.

The Calumet Democrat says he proposed House Bill 5542 last week to save taxpayer dollars by regulating M-DOT travel expenses and taking advantage of the newest available technology.

Specifically, the bill says M-DOT employees shall not use state-owned aircraft to travel for personal or official state business and shall use video conferencing to conduct department business whenever possible.

Dianda added that his bill will decrease unnecessary state spending and save taxpayers money.
