This bill prohibits the use of federal funds for the official travel of a senior political appointee on a non-commercial, private, or chartered flight, unless: (1) a commercial flight was unavailable for the travel in question, or (2) the aircraft is owned or leased by the government.
An appointee who travels on a non-commercial, private, or chartered flight must provide a statement to Congress certifying that no commercial flight was available. The bill makes it a crime for an appointee to knowingly and willfully make such a statement that is false, fictitious, or fraudulent.
