Rep. Nate Bell (more affectionately known as “the Mena Gnome”) presented HB1044 or “The Mileage Reimbursement Fairness Act” before the House State Agencies & Governmental Affairs Committee this morning. The bill makes mileage reimbursement even across the board for all state employees, setting the rate at 42 cents per mile. Historically, state legislators are reimbursed at a higher rate.
I happened to be there, so I snagged some video. Enjoy:
