Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price has taken at least 24 flights on private charter planes at taxpayers expense since early May, according to people with knowledge of his travel plans and a review of HHS documents. The frequency of the trips underscores how private travel has become the norm -- rather than the exception -- for the Georgia Republican during his tenure atop the federal health agency, which began in February.

The university and its police department are proceeding on the assumption that all the speakers are showing up, and we are putting the necessary security procedures in place, says UC-Berkeley assistant vice chancellor for public affairs, Dan Mogulof. Last week, the university spent approximately $600,000 on security to host conservative commentator Ben Shapiro.
