Can you send out an email regarding officials fees such as how much a referee, judge, time keeper and a deputy inspector makes per event. I would also like to know how other states pay the officials per diem. Do they pay by the mile or a flat fee for gas? Hotel? Meals? I appreciate it Michael.

In Arkansas the only fees we have for officials are licensing fees, the promoter of the event pays the officials. All of our inspectors are paid $100 per event, reimbursement for mileage(.42 per mile) and meals, and a hotel room if the event is 70 miles from their home.
In Nebraska, I just charge $150 for referees, $100 for judges and timekeepers for boxing and MMA. I generally figure a reasonable travel/hotel reimbursement if neccessary. Our inspectors are state employees and are paid a per diem rate of $90.
There’s no set travel amount. We usually determine travel or lodging on a case by case basis.
Our inspectors are state employees and are paid around $16 an hour. They do receive travel and meal reimbursements that change year to year based on union contracts. This year the mileage rates are $0.54 per mile.
