The Board will make the following inquires: (1)Has the Legislature analyzed the travel request to determine if legislative duties are involved? (2) Would the Legislature view the expenses as a proper expenditure of public funds, even though a third party has offered to pay? (3) Is the legislative purpose of the trip substantive and not minor? The Board emphasizes that this opinion was restricted to "an appearance in an official capacity" and the gift exemption.
