The State of Alabama law regarding in-state per diem has been updated with the enactment of HB 550. This update expands the exception noted under Section 2.10.5 of the UA Travel Policy to include both state or national organizations of which the state or the individual is a dues paying member. As a result, UA personnel traveling to attend a conference, seminar, or other meeting of a state or national organization of which the state or the individual is a dues paying member can receive reimbursement for lodging and meals based on the guidance in Section 2.11 and 2.12 of the UA Travel Policy. If you have any questions regarding this exception, please contact Accounts Payable. The UA Travel Policy will be updated to reflect this change in the law.
