Crooks: House Eases How Lawmakers Report Free Trips

Via avordvet

The House is no longer requiring lawmakers to report some free trips they take on the annual forms they file about their personal finances, drawing fire from advocates of more transparency in government.

Legislators will still have to report details about their travel on the House clerk's website, which is less commonly monitored by reporters, watchdog groups and others than the financial disclosure reports. That website information is publicly available and is far more specific than the single line of information that — until now — they have provided on their financial disclosure forms.
