Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: January 29, 2013 03:54 PM
From: Senator Michael L. Waugh
To: All Senate members
Subject: Lobbying Ban Extension
I am reintroducing legislation that amends Section 1103(g) of Title 65 (Public Officers) of Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes. This was Senate Bill 797 of the 2011-12 session of the General Assembly.

Under the current statute, a former employee or official cannot represent an organization before the government body that was his or her employer for one year after leaving government service or employment. My bill would extend that ban to two years. This legislation will address voter concerns about possible conflicts of interest and outside influence on state government.

Co-sponsors of Senate Bill 797 were Senators Brubaker, Eichelberger, Erickson, Ferlo, Folmer, Mensch and Rafferty.

If you have any questions regarding this legislation, please contact Greg Beckenbaugh in my office at 787-3817, or at gbeckenbaugh@pasen.gov .

Introduced as SB503
