Jerry Brown issues business travel restrictions for state workers

From our sister blog, Capitol Alert:

Gov. Jerry Brown today issued an executive order banning state employee travel that is "not mission-critical."

The order targets all in- and out-of-state travel that costs the state money and is not "directly related to enforcement responsibilities, audits, revenue collection or other duties required by statute, contract or executive directive."

Capitol Bureau colleague Torey Van Oot has the story and the executive order, which you can read by clicking here.
