Pennsylvania currently allows legislators to receive gifts as long as a specific exchange is not happening. This type of exchange is very hard to prove making it so that bribery is essentially legalized. I strongly support a gift ban that would disallow any gifts at all from lobbyists, those with business before the government, those with an economic interest at stake, and those who are regulated by government agencies. With this legislation, making a difficult to prove direct connection between gifts and actions/votes won’t be necessary to stop lobbyists in their tracks.
