Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee has reportedly been racking up bills in security and travel expenses, state records show.
Records cited by the Seattle Times indicate that the Executive Protection Unit (EPU) – which accompanies Inslee on domestic and international trips — has exceeded its $2.6 million budget by $400,000. And the costs are expected to rise.
The article goes on to state the following:
In the past year, Inslee has made appearances in more than a dozen states – on official business and to campaign for Democratic candidates. The security detail that follows Inslee to-and-from events is akin to the Secret Service assigned to President Trump.
Inslee’s post on the Democratic Governors Association ends in December, but the State Patrol is poised to increase its budget to cover the governor’s out-of-state travel over the next two years. The Patrol has already requested an additional $1.3 million to cover the costs of protecting the governor and his family, Northwest News Network reported, citing state troopers.
