Sen. Jack Reed and his wife received an oil painting, china, silverware, crystal and one night of accommodations at the Inn at Perry Cabin Hotel in St. Michaels, Md., among other gifts, at their wedding last year.
Rep. Patrick Kennedy reported unearned income between $15,001 and $50,000 from Arctic Royal Limited Partnership, which owns oil and gas royalty interests, according to Kennedy's report.
The American Israel Education Foundation paid for Rep. James Langevin's trip to Israel in August 2005. The American Shipbuilding Association paid for his trip to Naples, Fla., last fall.
Sen. Lincoln Chafee and his wife own undeveloped land in Sorrento, Maine, valued between $500,001 and $1 million. Chafee's wife owns WeeHoose Farm, LLC, a family horse farm in the senator's hometown of Exeter. It is valued at more than $1 million and produced rental income.
