Davis makes ethics reform a priority in 2019

Davis makes ethics reform a priority in 2019

Gov. Tom Wolf signed the first bill of this session into law last month, strengthening penalties for public officials convicted of job-related felonies. Under the new law, lawmakers convicted of felonies related to their position will be stripped of their taxpayer-funded pension, a provision that members from both sides of the aisle believe was long overdue. 

Rep. Tina Davis (D-Bucks) wants to take the new law a step further with a series of bills designed to reform ethics in Harrisburg. At the crux of her efforts is a bill that would ban public officials from receiving gifts, with the goal of preventing veiled forms of bribery in state government.

Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta (D-Philadelphia) and Rep. Andrew Lewis (R-Dauphin) joined from opposite sides of the aisle to work together to put out a co-sponsor memo for the "Fighting Chance Act." 

The act would require agencies overseeing occupation licensure and the Board of Probation and Parole to reduce red tape by 25 percent over the next three years to make it easier for people to get into certain occupations.
