We need to make gerrymandering and unlimited gifts from lobbyists to Legislators illegal!
The “Gift Ban” (HB 39), introduced by a conservative Republican, makes it illegal for legislators to take gifts from lobbyists. Right now, they can take anything, any size, any amount, any time. Vacations, sports tickets, cars, food, drinks, nights on the town. All are legal and all are corrupt.
The other bill (HB 722) takes gerrymandering out of the hands of the politicians and puts it into the hands of the citizens. Instead of politicians choosing their voters, the voters get to choose their politicians.
We want Mike Turzai to be our hero: The guy who cleaned up Harrisburg by making the politicians do what they don’t ever want to do: Vote on anti-corruption bills.
Turzai has the power to move these bills. Call Turzai now and tell him to make corruption illegal.

Hello, my name is ____ and I am calling to urge Speaker Turzai to use his influence and power to bring HB39 and HB722 to a vote. These bills would end unlimited gifts to Legislators and end gerrymandering by creating an independent non-partisan citizens commission. Will the Speaker commit to doing what is in his power to help make corruption illegal in Pennsylvania?
