Amendment 12 aims to curb lobbying and abuse of office by public officials, but will it really change that much?
It’s fairly common for some public and elected officials to leave their government jobs, and go work for organizations lobbying those same offices. Passing Amendment 12 would restrict this path.
“Right now we have a lot of these restrictions in place,” Alcock said. “For a lot of these actors, maybe not all of them for two years, so most substantively it’s a bump from 2 years to 6 years in terms of a prohibition on lobbying.”
The bill would also expand the number of public offices included in the lobbying restrictions.
