About This View
This chart shows the summed amount of out-of-state travel expenses reimbursed to state employees (in dollars) by major functions of the State of Iowa during fiscal year 2012*. Functions are groups of agencies which make expenditures for similar programs and purposes. The seven functional areas are: administration and regulation, agriculture and a natural resources, economic development, education, health and human services, justice system and transportation. These functions largely correspond to the Legislature's Appropriation Subcommittees.
*The State of Iowa operates on a modified accrual basis which provides that encumbrances on June 30 must be paid within 60 days after year end, so the budget fiscal year extends for 60 days past the end of the fiscal year.
