Missouri Bill to Require Elected Officials to Dissolve Campaign Committees Upon Lobbyist Registration
The Missouri Senate recently passed a bill to restrict certain political contributions from registered lobbyists. The bill limits the ways campaign committee funds can be invested and prohibits elected officials from keeping their campaign money if they become lobbyists.
If the bill becomes law, elected officials would need to dissolve their respective campaign committees upon registering as lobbyists.
The Senate amended the version previously passed by the House, so the bill must head back to the House for final approval.
