Description

"The Center's nine-month investigation found that members of Congress and their aides made extensive use of privately funded travel during a five and a half year period ending in June 2005, collectively taking at least 23,000 trips valued at nearly $50 million. While some of these trips were legitimate fact-finding missions, manY were poorly disguised vacations, underwritten by corporations, trade groups and others with business before Congress."
