- BY FGA
Naples, FL—The Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) presented Pennsylvania State Representative Seth Grove with its “2022 FGA Legislator of the Year” award.
Chairman Grove was selected for his noteworthy work on program integrity and election reform. This includes House Bill 1300, which included major reforms including stronger voter identification requirements and signature check requirements for mail-in ballots. Chairman Grove also worked extensively with former Governor Tom Wolf (D) on a new law that reduces outside influence in local elections by banning private funding (like Zuckerbucks).
During 2022, as chairman of the state government committee, Grove convened over 70 public hearings related to election integrity, program integrity, and workforce related matters. He and his staff received and reviewed hundreds of written testimonies from Pennsylvanians of all backgrounds and was committed to working toward the best possible policies for Pennsylvania, regardless of political party or motivation. He currently is leading an effort aimed at achieving program integrity in the commonwealth’s welfare and unemployment programs so that funds are protected for the truly needy.
“Chairman Grove has devoted his career to ensuring that every government program from welfare and Medicaid to elections oversight are transparent and free from impropriety, fraud, waste, and abuse,” said Joe Horvath, state government affairs director for FGA. “Rep. Grove has made a reputation for himself as a straight-talking, hard-working pragmatist who frequently reaches across the aisle for the betterment of the Keystone State. Thanks to his efforts and willingness to engage with his colleagues, Pennsylvanians have stronger elections and will soon have stronger safety nets for the truly needy.”
