The Missouri House of Representatives has spent about $65,000 related to its investigation of former Gov. Eric Greitens.

Figures provided Monday to The Associated Press show a special House investigatory committee spent more than $25,000 on court reporters, subpoena service and supplies.

The House spent more than $39,000 on per diem and mileage payments for lawmakers to participate in a special session focused on potential impeachment proceedings against Greitens.

Those figures do not include additional costs to be accrued Monday, as House and Senate members gather in special session for a speech by Greitens' replacement, Gov. Mike Parson.

Greitens resigned June 1 while facing allegations of sexual and political misconduct.

Records previously provided to the AP show attorneys who represented Greitens' office are seeking over $150,000 from the state.
