Did you know that in Pennsylvania, it is completely legal for paid lobbyists to “gift” anything to our state representatives.

Yes, you read that correctly. Our state representatives can accept expensive concert tickets, vacations, and be wined and dined in Harrisburg every night they are in session. Oh, and by the way, there is also no limit on the amount of money any individual or group can donate to a political campaign.

It is time for Pennsylvania to change the way business is done in Harrisburg. We need to enact legislation that sets sensible limits on what legislators can accept.

To learn more there will be a public meeting about HB 1945, and our continuing reform efforts in Pennsylvania on February 6, 2020, 7:00 P.M. at Elegante Restaurant & Pizzeria.
