December 6, 2016 |  

On the day he took his oath as a new member of the California State Assembly, one new members has declined to take his per diem allowance.

On Monday, December 5 Assemblymember Kevin Kiley, who was elected to represent California's 6th Assembly District, announced he will decline the allowance. The allowance, which is over $34,000 annually, is given to lawmakers to cover personal expenses in Sacramento.

"I will work every day to protect taxpayer dollars, and declining the per diem is just a start," Kiley said. "I look forward to working across the aisle to make government more effective, efficient, and transparent."

Kiley, who was elected to the Assembly on November 8th and fellow Republican succeeds Beth Gaines has made fiscal responsibility and government accountability legislative priorities. The 6th Assembly District straddles the eastern suburbs of Sacramento, including Folsom, Roseville, and El Dorado Hills.
