Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: February 15, 2013 04:12 PM
From: Senator Lisa Baker
To: All Senate members
Subject: State Ethics Commission Filing Updates
Please join me in co-sponsoring legislation to increase transparency by improving access to the financial interest statements filed with the State Ethics Commission. Specifically, my legislation will amend Title 65 (Public Officers) to:

  • Require statewide officials and members of the General Assembly to file financial interest statements electronically, a change which will make them both more quickly available and easier to search.

  • Improve access to the statements by making them searchable and sortable by name, office held, year and if amended.

  • Require the Ethics Commission to create an opt-in system to provide email notification when new or amended statements are posted.

  • Require statewide and county political party officers to file financial interest statements with the Ethics Commission. (This provision was introduced last session as Senate Bill 1558 by Senator McIlhinney.)

Thank you.

Introduced as SB899
