Newly released records say taxpayers spent six figures reimbursing Assembly lawmakers for trips out of state since 2015.

  The records were released late last week and say taxpayers covered 60 trips for Republicans, who control the state Assembly with 63 members, and 24 trips for the 35 Democratic lawmakers in the past three years.  Various lawmakers took trips that included attending President Donald Trump's first address to Congress, a tour of a Texas prison, and witnessing Congressman Paul Ryan being sworn in as House Speaker.
