MEMORANDUM

Posted: December 19, 2016 10:06 AM
From: Senator Scott Wagner
To: All Senate members
Subject: Constitutional Amendment Eliminating Government-Funded Collection of Political Funds
 
In the near future, I intend to reintroduce Senate Bill 500 of 2015-2016, which calls for a Constitutional amendment aimed at ending the practice of having taxpayer-funded payroll systems collect money that is ultimately used for politics.

Specifically, this legislation amends both Article IV, Section 20 and Article IX, Section 9 to prevent the Executive Branch of the Commonwealth and public school districts, respectively, from collecting membership dues, non-membership fees, or political contributions from employees. Additionally, provisions in collective bargaining agreements authorizing such collections would be void.

Previous co-sponsors were: ALLOWAY, AUMENT, BARTOLOTTA, CORMAN, EICHELBERGER, FOLMER, SCARNATI, SMUCKER, and WHITE.

If you have any questions, please contact Jason E. High at 717-787-3817 or jhigh@pasen.gov.


Introduced as SB167
