Dear Principal Investigators and Research Administrators:
On June 28, 2021, California Attorney General Rob Bonta announced that California will prohibit state-funded travel to Arkansas, Florida, Montana, North Dakota, and West Virginia as a result of discriminatory legislation signed into law this year. Due to this, the list of banned states have been updated.
What does it mean for your sponsored projects?
If you will be traveling to any of the banned states, you will need to follow the campus travel approval procedures for banned states:
