Legislation to Implement Lobbyist Revolving Door Policy Gaining Momentum in Missouri Senate
A bill creating a revolving door for lawmakers seeking to lobby after leaving office was approved by the Senate Rules, Joint Rules, Resolutions, and Ethics Committee by a 7-0 vote.
The bill requires state lawmakers to wait two years after leaving office before working as lobbyists. It also bans out-of-state travel paid by lobbyists and limits when a lobbyist can report spending on a group of legislators instead of on individual members.
If passed, the bill would have an effective date of January 2017.
