Lately the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has been hitting the nail square on the head regarding lobbyist disclosure and reform of Pennsylvania state government. I don’t say this because I do some work for the Post-Gazette; I say it because I believe it’s true.
As my regular readers know, I have done some coverage recently of a legislative move afoot to create a lobbyist disclosure law in Pennsylvania. The legislation is state Senate Bill 1.
On Friday, the Post-Gazette endorsed lobbyist disclosure in Pennsylvania in a creatively written editorial. The editorial called for Pennsylvanians to fight for a more representative government.
In more than one way, the editorial reminded me of a rant I wrote a while back. In that rant I spouted about how everyone should be angry about influence peddling in Pennsylvania.
