“Today, Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon (PA-7) introduced her first piece of legislation, the Inaugural Fund Integrity Act (IFIA), which will establish limits on donations to inaugural committees, and require donations and disbursements to be disclosed.
“The lack of oversight of inaugural committees has created serious questions about possible quid pro quo deals with the current administration,” said Congresswoman Scanlon. “We need to restore faith in our democratic institutions and write into law the ethical standards which the people have the right to expect. While our President refuses to do his job – pushing our government into a shutdown – we need to continue to do what the American people elected us to do. I believe the Inaugural Fund Integrity Act is a critical component in our path forward to a government that works for the people.””
