Cost of Calendars

The Chief Clerks offices for both the PA House and Senate have graciously provided the cost of printing those lovely Capitol Calendars. Here is the breakdown:

Calendars Printed: 240,000
Cost of printing: $90,000
Individual member info not provided

Calendars Printed: 56,500
Cost of printing: $41,500
Individual member info: "Each member recieved 1,000 calendars, except Senator Eichelberger who did not receive any and Senator Folmer who recieved only 500."

Neither provided the cost of postage/shipping, but the postage for the calendars we received was $1.65. Some of the 296,500 were kept to give out by hand. If I assumed that 200,000 were mailed, that puts the total cost to taxpayers at $371,500
