Update May 11, 2012: Rep. Bill Owens announces he will reimburse costs for Taiwan trip.
Documents filed under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, along with a trip disclosure filed at the House Ethics Committee, chart the role of lobbyists at Park Strategies as they arranged a four-day trip by Rep. Bill Owens, D-N.Y., and his wife to Taiwan in December. Congressional ethics rules prohibit members from taking most trips arranged by lobbyists. | Related story: Lobbyists Arranged N.Y.
