HB73 – Double Dipping Disclosure

We don’t just pay attention to bills sponsored by Democrats here at Blue Delaware’s Vote Tracker.  We pay attention to bills that will either promote or harm progressive policy.   Transparency and Open Government are progressive policies and if a Republican sponsors a bill to do just that, even if their motives are not entirely pure, we pay attention.  Thus is the case with HB73.

This bill requires an elected official or other paid appointed official of this state or any county or political subdivision who is also employed by any state agency, education, or other institution, or any other political subdivision of this State to disclose such employment to the Public Integrity Commission (PIC). This disclosure will assist the PIC and the State Auditor in evaluating if the official is receiving dual compensation for coincident hours of work.

The bill has two Democratic sponsors, Helene Keeley and Kim Williams.

AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 29 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO STATE COMPENSATION POLICY.

  1. I’m surprised that you do not have to list your employment as part of your PIC disclosure. Wonder how the State Auditor or anyone else will determine that anyone is double-dipping though.
