Statement of the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Committee on Ethics Regarding Disclosure of Privately Sponsored Travel

Jul 3, 2014

Earlier this year, the Committee adopted several changes to its guidance regarding financial disclosure reporting. Among them was a revision to no longer require limited reporting of officially connected, privately sponsored travel on annual financial disclosure reports, provided that a much more detailed, publicly available report of the trip had already been filed. Some recent press reports regarding this change have created confusion in the House community by suggesting that Members and House staff no longer have to make any disclosure of privately sponsored travel, that the public would no longer have access to any information about privately sponsored travel, and that the rules governing what types of privately sponsored travel are acceptable have been changed. None of that is correct.
