GSA to Form New Travel Policy Advisory Panel

JetBluePlaneThe General Services Administration will form a new advisory committee to help formulate new policies regarding travel, the Washington Post reports.

Josh Hicks writes the agency will appoint members from the travel industry to serve on the panel.

According to the report, the Office of Management and Budget has ordered agencies to decrease all travel spending in 2013 by 30 percent from 2010 levels.

Members of a House panel proposed legislation in July 2012 to limit their travel spending in 2013 to 70 percent of what they spent in 2010.

That bill would have also directed agencies to submit reports of travel xpenses covered under federal funding.
