Travel Pay Abuse

Do not allow TDY's to high cost areas. Example DC/VA areas. Instead limit TDY's to military installations. TDY's are meant for gaining knowledge or valuable training, instead they are treated as a free vacation. Enforce civilians to lodge on base and reduce all to the Govt meal rate. Allow civilians to eat at the dining facility as long as they have their orders. Increase the govt meal rate and incidentals by a few dollars to assist with laundry expenses. Get rid of the laundry reimbursable expenses as it is abused. Require receipts for expenses $25 and more as the current $75 is abused. Stop allowing civilian spouses to be placed on invitational orders to attend briefings/conferences with their military spouses.
