EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - After numbers came out that showed trustees at Michigan State University expensed over $90,000 in the first 10 months of 2013, big changes are now in place for trustee's travel.
Last month, all eight trustees agreed to the new guidelines.
Our media partners at MLive report that under the new rules, trustees can no longer charge limousine rentals to the university or make the school pick up the check at donor dinners.
Staying in suites will not be covered and MSU will only pay for one standard hotel room. The university will only reimburse travel and accomodations for one guest.
The guidelines also say that a trustee may not expense international travel during their last three months in office. They now also must meet with school administrators and the board's chairperson before they can book international travel.
Finally, when it comes to event tickets, trustees will now only get two tickets to things like shows at the Wharton Center. For MSU sporting events, they can get up to four at no cost.
When travelling, one mid-sized car rental for trustees will be covered by the university and trustees will no longer be given a daily allowance for meals because they're expected to pay for business meals.
