Unless the system is being abused for frivolous travel expenses of course.

And whatever the financial problems, I don't see why they can't just raise their licensing fees and make it back from the promoters. If the expenses are truly legit and they would happen in every state, then the promoters would obviously just pay the price that comes with having a legitimate sporting event.
After the DCA sent the CSAC that insolvency letter, the commissioners had a meeting with executive directer Dodd.

He said costs relating to inspectors were over half their budget. So it obviously adds up.
