Pennsylvania Pay-to-Play Law Signed by Governor
Gov. Tom Corbett has signed a bill to curtail pay-to-play politics in state procurement contracts. House Bill 201 prohibits individuals who were employed by an offeror within the previous two years from participating in the evaluation of proposals.
The new law will prevent recently hired government workers from rewarding their former employers with large state contracts.
This provision will go into effect on December 20.
