THE HIDDEN TAB: How taxpayers foot the bill on millions of personal accommodations for lawmakers and why you’ll never know
Between 2017 and 2020, the Pennsylvania legislature spent $203 million in taxpayer money on food, lodging, transport and other accommodations for lawmakers and their staff, but you’d never know it. That is in part because the public faces an array of barriers and even pushback from the lawyers hired by the General Assembly when it comes to tracking these expenses. Spotlight PA and The Caucus spent over a year investigating how the legislature spends taxpayer dollars then obscures those expenses from the public.

On Wednesday, July 28 at 5 p.m. join Angela Couloumbis, Spotlight PA’s Capitol Reporter, Sam Janesch, Brad Bumsted and Mike Wereschagin of The Caucus, and Khalif Ali, executive director of Common Cause Pennsylvania, in a free Q&A on state lawmaker expenses.
