No more House committee travel to be approved this year, $1.8-million allocated for 14 studies

House Leader Bardish Chagger says no instruction was given to freeze travel funding, while the Liaison Committee chair's office says it needs to get a bigger picture of priority studies to come.

The House Liaison Committee expressed concerns about the current process of approving committee travel budgets on an 'ad hoc' basis, without having a bigger picture of possible time-sensitive study requests, and it wants to see the big picture before approving any more travel costs.
