|From:||Senator John H. Eichelberger, Jr.|
|To:||All Senate members|
|Subject:||Lobbyists and Campaigns|
|I plan to re-introduce my government reform legislation from last session pertaining to the inherent conflict of interest in lobbyists managing the political campaigns of elected officials.
My legislation would prohibit a lobbyist from owning, being a partner in, or serving as an officer or board member of any consulting firm which receives compensation for providing assistance with political campaigns. The bill would also prohibit a lobbyist from working in a paid capacity for any political campaign.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important legislation. Co-sponsors of the bill last session were: AUMENT, WAGNER, RESCHENTHALER,TEPLITZ, ALLOWAY, STEFANO, BREWSTER AND CORMAN.
Introduced as SB130
