Pay-to-Play Survey


An increasing number of states and municipalities throughout the country impose some sort of pay-to-play rules restricting or requiring disclosure of political contributions that may relate to current or prospective government contracts. These rules often reach beyond corporate and political action committee (PAC) contributions and apply to contributions by corporate directors, officers, sales employees, and even their spouses. 

Our State and Municipal Pay-to-Play Survey, which explains how the pay-to-play laws in states and major municipalities impact prospective and current contractors, is published twice a year to incorporate the latest developments in this rapidly expanding area of the law. Written in narrative format and complete with legal citations, the survey is a comprehensive and useful tool for corporate counsel and others seeking to familiarize themselves with the multitude of state and local pay-to-play requirements. This survey is available as a subscription service for a fee. An example of a prior year survey for Philadelphia is available here.
