    Senate Ethics Rule:



    1. (a)(1) No Member, officer, or employee of the Senate shall knowingly accept a gift except as provided in this rule.


    (b)(1) For the purpose of this rule, the term “gift” means any gratuity, favor, discount, entertainment, hospitality, loan, forbearance, or other item having monetary value. The term includes gifts of services, training, transportation, lodging, and meals, whether provided in kind, by purchase of a ticket, payment in advance, or reimbursement after the expense has been incurred.
