Pennsylvania House Committee Bans Cash Gifts
The Pennsylvania House Bipartisan Management Committee has adopted an ethics rule banning cash gifts.
The rule was imposed in response to the highly publicized sting operation involving four House members who allegedly took cash from a lobbyist.
The rule permits house members to receive cash from family members and non-lobbyist friends.
