A few more details on Governor Paterson's reimbursement for using a state-owned plane to fly to Washington D.C. for President Obama's inauguration. Paterson's campaign cut a check for $3,600 after the Times-Union wondered why that reimbursement wasn't included in campaign filings, which had included other inauguration-related travel. Now the Times-Union reports that the $3,600 estimate, apparently from the State Police, may be too low: " State officials using state aircraft for non-state business are required to reimburse using charter rates, which are more than just cost of the plane. Profit and airport fees also must be included. The requirement was part of an ethics opinion embraced by Gov. Eliot Spitzer in the summer of 2007, who made it state policy." A "charter" estimate would be around $8,000; Paterson's campaign says it is prepared to pay more for the reimbursement.
