Overseers of the House page program have reportedly been talking about a camping trip that Republican Congressman Jim Kolbe took with former pages and others ten years ago.

The same 1996 trip is under review by the Justice Department.

A congressional source says the House Page Board doesn't have any new information beyond recent news stories on the rafting trip that Kolbe, the only openly gay Republican in Congress, took with his sister, five staff members and two former pages.

But the conference call on the matter suggests officials responsible for the page program are looking beyond ex-Congressman Mark Foley's behavior with teenage pages.

Meanwhile, the House ethics committee today is turning to the chief of staff to House Majority Leader John Boehner about what and when she was told of Foley's activities.
