Rabb seeks support for legislation that would fine legislators who leave due to felony related issues

Rep. Chris Rabb (D-Philadelphia) joined The PLS Reporter to talk about legislation that would fine legislators $100,000 who resign or are expelled from the legislature and then are convicted of a felony. 

Rabb discussed how expensive special elections are and how currently tax payer dollars are how they are being funded. He believes that if legislators must leave due to a conflict that results in a felony, they should be paying for the special election race, not the taxpayers.
