Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) of B.C. will no longer be able to expense meals for their families.

On Tuesday, MLAs terminated their own ability to have provincial taxpayers pay for the food of their spouses, children and grandchildren while visiting the legislature, the Vancouver Sun reported.

Elected officials were eligible to expense $61 per day in food while members of their family visited the capital in Victoria.

However, MLAs can still expense flights for families and friends traveling to Victoria by air. Up to 12 accompanying people can be expensed on flights.
