LANSING (AP) – A newspaper investigation finds the state of Michigan spends at least $40 million a year for employees’ travel but there are inconsistencies in reporting and no high-level oversight.

The Lansing State Journal reports that nobody in state government is responsible for analyzing actual costs incurred by departments for employees’ work-related travel expenses. The State Budget Office says it doesn’t keep some of the out-of-state travel reports it’s required to receive.

Each agency or department is responsible for its own expenses.
