The House panel looking into impeachment charges against Gov. Mark Sanford tossed out charges connected to four of nine state plane trips the State Ethics Commission says could have violated state law. The panel also added another trip to consider.
- A 2005 flight to attend an Anderson County Republican Party dinner
- A 2006 flight to a National Governors Association meeting in Lewisburg, Va.

- A 2007 flight to Greenville to attend an event of the S.C. House Republican Caucus
- A 2006 flight from Mount Pleasant to Aiken to attend the birthday party of a campaign contributor
- A 2008 flight to Charleston to attend a Reason Foundation dinner (a conservative think tank)
- A 2008 flight to South America - paid for by taxpayers as an economic-development trip - where Sanford admitted meeting with his lover. Sanford subsequently repaid the state more than $3,000. But the panel added this trip to its investigation Tuesday.

- A 2006 flight to Mount Pleasant for a book signing
- A 2006 flight from Myrtle Beach to Columbia to attend a son's sporting event
