Personal Financial Disclosure
Every Member of the U.S. House of Representatives who was in office by May 15 of the current year is required to file a Financial Disclosure Statement covering these categories, for the previous calendar year:
- earned income (e.g., salaries and fees)
- donations made by others to charities in lieu of paying a Representative for a speech, appearance, or article
- “unearned” income
- assets purchased, sold, or exchanged
- gifts received
- travel reimbursements
- positions held by the Representative
- agreements with outside entities
Financial disclosure statements for Representatives are available on the Internet on or about June 15 of the year they are filed. I took office on January 3, 2013. My financial disclosure statements are filed with the Clerk of the House and are available through the Clerk’s Financial Disclosure Reports Database.
Every three months, the Chief Administrative Officer of the House publishes the “Statement of Disbursements” — the official report of the receipts and expenditures of every office of the House of Representatives. The full text of this report is available here.
