Vermont's state-owned aircraft continues to make headlines even after the governor postponed a plan to buy a new one.
Records show Gov. Peter Shumlin, D-Vermont, used the state's Cessna five times last year. Staffers say prior to that, he didn't know he had access to it.
Press Secretary Sue Allen confirmed that her boss chose to fly for official business when he had a scheduling conflict. But on at least one occasion, the administration admits the governor used the plane for a campaign event and did not reimburse taxpayers. Transportation officials say Shumlin owes them $65 for that trip. The total cost for his five flights was about $1,600.
