Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: June 3, 2021 10:52 AM
From: Senator Kristin Phillips-Hill
To: All Senate members
Subject: Prohibition of Lobbyists from Serving on State Appointments
In the near future, I will introduce legislation that would prohibit lobbyists from serving on state agency boards, commissions, committees and councils. This appointment prohibition would extend to state-owned universities as well as state-related universities.
The Commonwealth has many boards, commissions, committees and councils that guide state agencies and universities on decisions that impact various fields and industries. Furthermore, certain appointments come with significant salaries, exceeding six-figures, including the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, Gaming Control Board, and the Public Utility Commission.
No paid lobbyist should be able to also have an inside track in advising state agencies, commissions and schools on matters that may pose as a conflict of interest.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important piece of legislation.
