Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: December 3, 2012 10:11 AM
From: Senator Dominic Pileggi
To: All Senate members
Subject: Legislation Regarding Lobbying For Contingent Fees
I plan to introduce legislation closing a loophole which allows lobbyists to collect a contingency fee for grants, loans, capital projects and other awards of Commonwealth funds.

Current Pennsylvania law prohibits the compensation of a lobbyist contingent upon the occurrence, nonoccurrence or amendment of legislative action or of an administrative action. However, the law does not prohibit this practice for grants, loans, etc.

This legislation will be similar to Senate Bill 107 (printer’s number 164) from the 2011-12 legislative session.

Introduced as SB199
