    House Bill #36 was signed by the Governor on February 16, 2001 and requires the Board of Examiners to set the reimbursement rate in the State Travel Policy that does not excee1d the IRS rate. The Statewide Fiscal Policy Advisory Committee (FPAC) recommends the following amendments to Appendix B of the State Travel Policies and Procedures effective July 1, 2001.
      Daily Meal Reimbursement
      Remove: In-state of $20/day and Out of-state of $30/day

      Add
      Meal Reimbursement Rate:
      $30.00 per day is the base, but would allow the higher federal allowance in those locations published in IRS Publications.

      Partial Day Meal Reimbursement
      No change from the current percentage limits of 25% for breakfast, 35% for lunch, and 55% for dinner. These percentages would apply based on the travel designation.
      Discussion was held on adopting an in-state standard rate of $30.00 per day and using the Federal rate schedule for out of state meals. It was felt that the rate would include incidental expenses and not allow for payment separately. Ben felt the partial day meal reimbursement percentages should also raise. Ben Ysursa made a motion to recommend approval on the Regular Agenda effective July 1, 2001. David High seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously.

      OTHER COMMENTS FROM LARRY KIRK, LEGISLATIVE SERVICES AND DAVE TOLMAN, DIVISION OF FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT

      Larry Kirk stated he feels Division Administrators are not eligible for compensatory time. Steve Kenyon will check on this. David High modified his motion that only people eligible for compensatory time be paid. Brian Whitlock seconded the motion.

      The following people were pulled from the list of employees recommended for payment of compensatory time on the Board of Examiners agenda. The Sub-Committee members will research the matter further and it will be discussed at the next Sub-Committee meeting:
        Department of Fish and Game - Stephen M. Barton
        Department of Juvenile Corrections – Paul Carroll
                                Anthony Meatte
                                Jack Cordon

      Dave Tolman stated regarding #16 we have to be consistent in how we pay employees. He feels we can pay only overtime at time and a half, and not all hours in order to follow Federal guidelines. David High amended his motion to recommend approval only if it is subject to approval of DFM that it meets Federal guidelines.

      Larry Kirk made some suggestions on addressing the compensatory time payment issue. He felt Ann Heilmann might sent a memo to state agencies on who is eligible for overtime payment, and also review on-call policy because state agencies are not using a consistent policy.

      David High mentioned that Attorney General Al Lance asked that the Sub-Committee members review ways to offer incentives and encourage state employees to stay an extra day on business travel when it saves the state money because of airline costs. Also look into the possibility of combining meals and lodging like the Federal government does.
