Bill Amending Revolving Door for Lobbyists Awaits California Governor’s Signature
A bill further restricting revolving door provisions was sent to Gov. Jerry Brown for consideration.
Assembly Bill 1620 would change the current law prohibiting legislators from lobbying from one year to up to three years, depending on when he or she steps down from office. The bill states a legislator could not lobby during the two-year session after he or she was elected, plus another full year after the session ends.
If signed by the governor, the bill is effective January 1, 2018.
