Fallin’s visit to New York cost more than $6,000

The Associated Press - November 24, 2016 12:07 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin’s office says her trip to New York to visit with President-elect Donald Trump on Monday cost the state more than $6,000, mostly in fuel costs for the state airplane.

Information released from Fallin’s office on Wednesday in response to a request from The Associated Press shows the cost of using the “Spirit of Oklahoma” state airplane totaled $5,867. That amount includes $5,265 for fuel plus travel expenses for the pilot.

Fallin spokesman Michael McNutt says additional costs were incurred for lodging and meals for members of the governor’s security detail, but those amounts weren’t yet available.

McNutt says Fallin paid for her own lodging Sunday night.

Fallin was meeting with Trump to discuss a possible role in his administration.
