MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 13, 2015 04:18 PM
From: Representative Harry Readshaw
To: All House members
Subject: Co-sponsor: Prohibit lobbyists from being PAC Treasurers
 

Upon our return, I plan to re-introduce legislation (HB 260) to prohibit a lobbyist from holding the position of treasurer for a PAC if the lobbyist represents the interest group comprising the PAC. This change would eliminate the lobbyist having control of the money belonging to those the lobbyist represents. By separating the money from the lobbyist, this legislation will reduce, or reduce the appearance of, the corruption and “payoffs” within the state political system. It is a simple, yet desperately needed, reform measure that I hope will be widely supported.

If you have any questions, or need any additional information, please contact Margaret Tricarico at
717-772-5568, Democratic Extension 6168 or mtricarico@pahouse.net.

Thank you!
