House of Representatives
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: January 8, 2015 03:19 PM
From: Representative Thomas P. Murt
To: All House members
Subject: Statement of Financial Interest Reporting Requirements
In the near future I will introduce legislation that expands reporting requirements on statements of financial interest for public officials and employees in Pennsylvania. My legislation will require reporting gifts valued at over $100. Any expenses for transportation, hospitality and lodging over $100 will also be reported.

Under current law, only gifts valued at over $250 are reported. Transportation, hospitality and lodging expenses are only reported if the value exceeds $650. Expanding the reporting requirements on statements of financial interests will expand accountability between the government and its citizens.

Introduced as HB1009
