AASP-PA helps secure fiscal code passage

April 26, 2016
AASP-PA scored a major victory with the passage of the fiscal code that coincides with the recently passed Pennsylvania State Budget.

AASP-PA, with the help of Representatives Sheryl M. Delozier and George Dunbar and the NIFB, has scored a major victory with the passage of the fiscal code that coincides with the recently passed Pennsylvania State Budget.

In the spring of 2015, PennDOT ran a pilot program that inserted direct mailers into registration renewals that featured a national automotive service chain. This immediately raised concerns from not only the small businesses we represent, but also from the small business community at large in Pennsylvania.

AASP-PA worked quietly behind the scenes with the two representatives to have the line below added to the fiscal code to effectively end any chance of the mailers happening again.

Department of Transportation (PENNDOT)

  • Prohibits the department from inserting direct mail pieces in mailings sent from the department.

Executive Director Jeff Walter stated that it was difficult to work on this effort. Many times over in the past year, we wanted to publicly state what we were doing with this issue, but were forced to keep quiet so as not to raise unwanted opposition to our cause. We are extremely grateful for all of those individuals who helped us gain this important victory for the entire small business community across the state.
