Chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), didn't have to travel outside her home state to speak at a private conference in December. However, she did neglect to file a trip disclosure from the event until now, more than five months late.

The Miami rep traveled from her home to West Palm Beach to serve as the keynote speaker at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's annual gathering in the city. She received car service and a light meal, but no overnight accommodations from the group, according to the disclosure. Ros-Lehtinen had not taken a privately financed trip since 2009 before attending AIPAC's event.

Ethics rules inform all members, "You must complete a Member Travel Disclosure Form and file it with the Clerk of the House within 15 days after your return from travel."
