Public servants on private planes? The White House is finally reining in its jet-setting cabinet members.

The White House is cracking down on the use of publicly funded private jets among cabinet members. The move comes after the recent resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, who has billed taxpayers more than $1 million for private and military flights since May. But Price is hardly the only Trump official with questionable travel expenses. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Inspector General is currently investigating the frequent trips to Oklahoma by EPA chief Scott Pruitt, whose noncommercial flights have also cost taxpayers upwards of $58,000. U.S. Department of the Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke took a $12,000 flight in June on a plane owned by an oil and gas executive, and, of course, there's Treasury Secretary Steven Mnunchin, who even had the nerve to ask for a government plane to take him on his honeymoon (though he later withdrew that request, another flight the newlyweds took to Kentucky during the solar eclipse is under investigation).
