PA Senate May Ban Cash Gifts, Too

Harrisburg goes on a reform spree.

First the House, now the Senate: “Soon, there’s a chance none of Pennsylvania’s lawmakers will be able to accept cash gifts. On the heels of the House Bipartisan Management Committee issuing a new rule Wednesday banning members from accepting cash gifts, the spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi, R-Philadelphia, said that chamber could take up a similar rule next week. The reforms come in the wake of a scandal in which four members of the Philadelphia House delegation were accused of accepting cash in a since-abandoned sting operation.” (PennLive)
