WA Legislature Considers Revolving Door Ban
A new ethics bill scheduled to be proposed in the Washington Legislature would impose a revolving door ban on state legislators, statewide elected officials, and directors of cabinet-level agencies.
The proposal was developed by Attorney General Bob Ferguson and Rep. Reuven Carlyle, D-Seattle.
The bill would impose a “cooling off” period, where said officials could not lobby state government for one year after leaving office.
