Greitens Issues Executive Order Banning Lobbyist Gifts to Executive Branch Employees
Almost immediately upon being sworn in as Missouri governor, Eric Greitens issued an executive order banning lobbyist gifts to executive branch employees.
The order also establishes a revolving door provision, prohibiting gubernatorial staff from lobbying his office after leaving their positions.
At the Capitol, Republican lawmakers held a meeting yesterday to endorse a bill to expand the executive order by banning most lobbyist gifts to legislators. The actions are part of an effort to reform state ethics laws and curb government corruption.
