Revolving Door Bill Introduced in Nevada
A bill prohibiting public officials from lobbying the Nevada Legislature immediately upon leaving office has been introduced into the assembly. Currently, the state has no revolving door prohibitions and public officials may lobby as soon as they leave office.
Assembly Bill 184 requires a two year cooling off period before a former state legislator, governor, or other specified executive branch official may serve as a paid lobbyist. The bill allows for exceptions such as representing a local agency where the former official is currently employed and making formal appearances before the Legislature.
