“Out of town Alberta MLAs will soon be required to claim their actual living expenses in Edmonton and not the flat monthly rate of $1,930.
The all-party members services legislative committee voted unanimously Tuesday to accept Alberta Party Leader Greg Clark’s proposal to only reimburse MLAs their exact living expenses up to the cap of $1,930.
‘Not only are we going to save some taxpayer dollars … but in addition to the money that it saves, it sends a very important message that MLAs are willing to show leadership, willing to find ways of doing more with less,’ Clark said after the meeting.”
