PA Hearing to Focus on Rules for Political Groups

A group that aired a TV ad critical of Republican Governor Tom Corbett is the impetus for a planned hearing before the House State Government Committee.  
Panel chairman Representative Daryl Metcalfe said he believes the Pennsylvanians for Accountability group is required to register as a state political committee and disclose contributions and expenditures because it's trying to influence the outcome of an election. He said the committee plans an informational hearing June 5th.
The group recently ran a TV spot alleges that the governor has played "a shell game" with taxpayers' money by expanding tax breaks for businesses while neglecting education, health care and transportation needs. The commercial aired in markets outside of the Philadelphia region.
Corbett is expected to run for a second term in 2014 and his stubbornly low job-approval rating has energized a half-dozen Democrats who are jockeying for the nomination to challenge him.
