Lawmakers request extension on financial disclosures
Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), Rep. John T. Doolittle (R-California) and Rep. Rick Renzi (R-Arizona) have received extensions to file financial disclosure forms amid federal investigations into their activities.

Stevens has been told by the FBI to preserve his records as part of a political corruption probe in Alaska. His son, a former Republican leader in the state Senate, is under investigation.

Doolittle and his wife are under investigation for links to convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Doolittle has praised Abramoff's work on behalf of gaming tribes.

Renzi, the co-chair of the Congressional Native American Caucus, faces scrutiny for land deals and government contracts. His district includes parts of the Navajo Nation and some Apache reservations.
