House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session

Subject: Strengthening the Taxpayer-Funded Advertising Transparency Act
I plan to introduce legislation to strengthen the Taxpayer-Funded Advertising Transparency Act (Act 90 of 2015). The act requires Commonwealth agencies that purchase paid media advertising to include a notice that the advertising was paid for with taxpayer dollars.

My legislation would expand the application of this notice requirement to grantees or contractors that use taxpayer money to purchase paid media advertising. Further, the legislation includes some clarifications to the act, including further prescribing what constitutes print advertising and broadcast advertising to ensure that all forms of media are subject to the requirements.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this important piece of legislation.

Introduced as HB2039
