A Shoreline lawmaker was among 19 legislators who had taxpayers cover their dry-cleaning costs in the past two years, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.
The report analyzed thousands of expense reimbursements, and found lawmakers had requested payment for things such as artwork in their offices, organization dues and dry cleaning, all as legitimate business expenses.
Sen. Maralyn Chase, D-Shoreline, requested reimbursement of $184.15 for dry cleaning, the news service reported.
Chase's office hasn't responded yet to Patch's request for comment.
