With expenses ranging from over $400 to over $1,200, Walters was able to sign off on his own expenditures as the head of the Oklahoma State Department of Education.

From there, the Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES) paid the travel claims since he submitted all required documentation, OMES told The Frontier.
