CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to know how much city employees are traveling and how much money they are being reimbursed.

In a news release, Emanuel’s office says the mayor has ordered the city comptroller to review travel expenditures for city departments as well as the travel and mileage reimbursement policies for the departments.

The release says the review — which is due in 30 days — will result in a single mileage reimbursement policy as well as ensure that only taxpayer money will be used only for what it calls critical operations that require travel.

At the same time, the release says that the mayor has suspended all travel and mileage reimbursement for his cabinet.
