Missouri Governor Signs Ethics Legislation
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon signed two ethics bills on Friday, May 6.
One bill creates a revolving door provision for lawmakers and statewide elected officials seeking to become lobbyists. They must wait at least six months after their terms end before engaging in lobbying. The second bill requires candidates to dissolve their campaign committees and either refund or donate the remaining funds upon registering as lobbyists.
Both bills are effective August 28, 2016.
