PA Senate Passes Paycheck Protection

Member Group : Commonwealth Foundation

Today, the Senate took a stand to protect the integrity of public dollars, give union members a greater voice in how their money is spent, and restore fairness to the political process by passing paycheck protection legislation!

SB 166, sponsored by Sen. John Eichelberger, allows government unions to collect and spend political money but prevents them from using government resources to do so. The bill also allows the continued collection of all union dues and fees used for collective bargaining and other representational activities. The bill does not affect collective bargaining rights for government unions.

Thank you to the 28 senators voting to restore fairness and level the playing field for taxpayers!

No Pennsylvanian should be forced to fund someone else’s politics. We urge the House to follow the Senate’s lead and pass paycheck protection quickly.
