Issues

Cash gift ban

In April 2014, Smucker and State Sen. Lisa Baker supported legislation to ban cash gifts for public officials and employees. The bill would prohibit public officials and employees from accepting United States or foreign currencies, money orders, checks, prepaid debit or credit cards and gift cards or certificates from lobbyists or people looking to influence public policy. “At one point the public was frustrated with the pace of reform. And now, I think they’re just appalled and demanding action,” Smucker said in an interview.[1]
