Although previous vice presidents have done so, Dick Cheney does not report travel expense reimbursements he receives from non-government groups when he makes speeches or other appearances. Federal law requires agency heads to make such reports but Cheney’s counsel told the Center for Public Integrity that the vice president is not the head of an agency within the meaning of the law, so no reporting is required. The Center said Cheney has given 23 speeches to think tanks and trade organizations and 16 at academic institutions since 2001. (11/29/05)
