It's Your Dime: Gold-Foiled Stationery

Posted:

Fox 29 Investigates is keeping an eye on government spending.

First it was calendars, then flags. Now investigative reporter Jeff Cole wants to know about your Pennsylvania state senators' stationery.

With thousands of bills, brochures and journals to print, it's no wonder the senate spent nearly $300,000 last year on paper.

But here's what we're asking: With our current cash crunch, did state lawmakers really need to spend your tax dollars on gold-foiled stationery?

Last fall, the senate doled out more than $17,000 to purchase 99,000 pieces of stationery emblazened with gold-foil. The paper features the state's coat-of-arms and individual senator's names.

About 70,000 envelopes for the stationery were also bought for more than $5,100.
