|Many Americans, not to mention the national security community, want to know whether presidential candidates and gubernatorial candidates have personal or business interests that could undermine their commitment to acting in the best interests of our Commonwealth or the United States.
The need for this legislation is clear. All Americans should be able to know whether any candidate for these two offices have any financial interests that may influence their decision making.
We must act before the 2020 election. My bill will require U.S. presidential candidates and gubernatorial candidates to make their tax returns public in order to be eligible to appear on the Pennsylvania ballot.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important legislation.
Introduced as HB583
