Sons of top two Pa. Senate leaders are registered lobbyists for same firm

The sons of Minority Leader Jay Costa and Majority Leader Kim Ward are both registered lobbyists with the same lobbying firm, Cameron Companies.

Given Ward’s and Costa’s direct relationships to the top Republican and Democrat in the Senate, respectively, the sons’ clients could get special treatment across the Legislature and a leg-up in getting their legislative priorities across the finish line, said Khalif Ali, the executive director of good-government nonprofit Common Cause PA.
