Texas House Elections Committee Public Hearing: Examines lobbyist disclosure and use of state e-mail for political communications
TIME & DATE: 1:00 PM, Monday, February 25, 2008
CHAIR: Rep. Leo Berman
The committee will hear invited testimony on the following charges:
Study the exemption in the Texas lobby contingent fee ban, which currently permits contingent fees and does not require lobby registration, for influenceing the purchasing of goods or servisces by a state agency.
Consider whether this exemption should be amended or repealed.
Research the current Texas law prohibiting the use of public resources
for political advertising, and determine whether the law needs to be amended to clarify that publicly funded e-mail systems may not be used for political communications.
