The Trump administration is ending subsidized gym memberships for Environmental Protection Agency employees due to what happened in Las Vegas.

The EPA says it took action after employees in Las Vegas billed $15,000 worth of yearly gym memberships at a private club.

A spokesperson says the benefit costs American taxpayers $900,000 a year.
