Roae Meets with Governor, Pushes Government Reform
2/24/2015
HARRISBURG – State Rep. Brad Roae (R-Crawford) today in Harrisburg met with Pennsylvania’s new governor, Tom Wolf, and discussed legislative proposals to reform state government.
 
“I believe Governor Wolf could have a significant influence if he got behind some of the important reform measures that would make our government more accountable,” Roae said.
 
Roae strongly supports one change that would limit the amount of money state legislators could collect as a reimbursement for travel and meal expenses. Legislators currently do not have to submit receipts in order to receive the payments, which are known as per diems.
 
Roae voluntarily submits receipts and only accepts reimbursements equal to his expenses.
 
“Most Pennsylvanians who are reimbursed for travel, lodging and meal expenses related to work have to submit receipts to their employers,” said Roae. “The current system allows legislators to receive payments above and beyond their expenses.”
 
Wolf met with Roae and a bipartisan group of other state representatives and senators who are members of the government reform caucus.
 
The lawmakers also discussed gift bans for elected officials, election law improvements and redistricting reform.
 
Redistricting is the process that takes place approximately every 10 years following the U.S. Census that redraws legislative district boundaries to account for changes in population.
 
Following population declines in northwestern Pennsylvania, the 5th Legislative District, which previously covered western portions of Erie and Crawford counties, moved to Berks County in the southeast portion of Pennsylvania.
