"This memorandum responds to your March 4, 1998 follow-up letter regarding our February 17, 1998 opinion on the applicability of 18 U.S.C. §§ 431-433 (1994) to the interests of two Members of Congress in government contracts under a proposed real estate transaction. In your letter, you raise the question whether a modified version of the transaction, as described by counsel for the interested entities, would be permissible under 18 U.S.C. § 431. We conclude that the modified transaction as described by counsel would not violate 18 U.S.C. § 431."
