Wolf Unveils Ethics Reform Plan
“This proposal enforces strict standards for how Harrisburg operates and it will rebuild trust in government. My plan will make sure that our citizens are the ones calling the shots – not entrenched special interests,” Wolf said.
The proposal would expand the gift ban Governor Wolf put into place for all executive branch employees to all public officials in the other two branches.
Wolf also called for a “No Budget, No Pay” bill that would stop lawmaker’s pay if the budget is not passed on time. The budget has been late in each of Wolf’s years in office.
Limits on campaign contributions is included in the plan, including limits from individuals to candidates and aggregate limits on money given to races. Wolf’s proposed reforms would also place restrictions on PACs and increase the disclosure requirements.
Wolf’s proposal also would include a requirement for elected officials to disclose outside income.
