Ic-trips About LegiStorm's Congressional Travel Database

Trips FAQ

LegiStorm's congressional travel database provides details on 39,738 privately financed trips costing $92.8 million taken by members of Congress and their staff since the beginning of 2000.

This information was obtained from the disclosure forms members of Congress and their staff are required to file after taking a privately-funded trip. From these disclosures you can learn:

  • Who has accepted free travel
  • Where they went and the purpose of the trip
  • How much was spent on transportation, lodging, meals and other expenses
  • And what private organization paid for it all

With LegiStorm's congressional travel database you can get even more. Use the View trip details icon to get details about any trip. You'll find records of everyone else who went on the trip, a map detailing where they stayed, a breakdown of how much they spent on transportation versus meals and lodging, a place for you to leave comments and much more.
