Should Legislators Receive Gifts from Lobbyists? I say NO!

This was a motion to hear bill H428 (The Lobbyist Gifts Bill) This bill would have amended the law so that your Representatives are not allowed to receive gifts from lobbyists. When those who voted Nay were asked why, they said “the bill was too vague”.

How much more detail do you need? This bill speaks volumes to me. I can tell you my name would have been in green. Gifts from lobbyists usually come with strings attached—they expect favors in return. The only gift I want is your vote on May 15. Please know that your voice is the only one I will be representing, not the Governor’s and not the special interests. It is you the citizen who I am seeking votes from, and it will be you who I am representing.
