The Latest: House probes Trump officials and travel

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - A congressional committee is launching a wide-ranging examination of air travel by high-ranking Trump officials following reports that Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price used pricey charters when cheaper commercial flights were available.
 
The House Oversight and Government Reform committee on Wednesday sent detailed records requests to the White House and 24 federal agencies.
 
Signed by committee's top Republican and Democrat, the requests demand information on political appointees' use of government planes for personal travel, as well as their use of private charters for official travel.
 
Congressional investigators are asking for records dating back to President Donald Trump's first day in office.
 
Separately, the Health and Human Services inspector general's office is also looking into some two dozen trips reportedly taken by Price.
 
Lawmakers are demanding records by Oct. 10.
