House Members, officers, and employees are subject to some specific laws and regulations regarding the acceptance of gifts, both from other House Members and employees and from outside sources. Certain types and values of gifts are permitted between employees. In addition, exceptions to the House gift rule (House Rule 25, clause 5) permit certain gifts from outside sources, such as food and refreshments, free attendance, and travel.
