4 lawmakers amend reports on gifts, travel

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Three state lawmakers have filed amended reports to say groups helped pay for trips to Alaska, Wyoming and Idaho.

A fourth amended his report to say he was given tickets to a University of Arkansas football game.

State Reps. Mike Burris says the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation of Washington, D.C., helped pay for trips to National Assembly of Sportsmen's Caucuses meetings in Alaska and Idaho. Rep. Randy Stewart reports the foundation helped pay for his trip to the meeting in Idaho.

Rep. John Paul Wells says Arkansas Electric Cooperatives paid for his trip to tour a coal mine in Wyoming. And Rep. Rick Green reports the cooperatives provided him with six tickets to a UA football game in Little Rock.

The disclosures come after an Arkansas Democrat-Gazette report that lobbyists had reported expenditures on behalf of legislators that the legislators had not reported.
