Description

Rehnquist's Corporate Jet Trip Questioned The Honolulu Advertiser Chief Justice William Rehnquist is taking a utility's corporate jet Saturday to Ohio so he can speak at the dedication of the state's new court building in Columbus. American Electric Power is flying Rehnquist at the request of the Ohio Supreme Court, which plans to pay for the $3,800 flight. The cost is more than three times the most expensive round-trip ticket between Washington and Columbus. The propriety of the flight is being questioned by the watchdog group Ohio Citizen Action because AEP is being sued by the Environmental Protection Agency and Justice Department for allegedly violating the Clear Air Act. The case could reach the Supreme Court.
