I'm in Spokane for a few days, and I saw this in the Spokesman-Review:
A state senator from Boise will introduce at the 2008 Idaho
Legislature a "revolving-door" bill to prevent state government
officials from jumping immediately into the private sector as lobbyists.
Senate Minority Caucus Chair Kate Kelly, D-Boise, said she is preparing legislation that would require state government officials and their staff members to wait one year before going to work as a lobbyist and seek concessions from former colleagues. The law would include state lawmakers and statewide elected officials, such as the governor or superintendent of public instruction, and their staffs.
The issue resurfaced last week when Jeff Malmen, the chief of staff to Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter and one of the state's mostly influential Republicans, became a lobbyist for Idacorp, the holding company for Idaho Power Co.
Here's the original story from The Times-News. As the sign says, "Idaho is NOT for sale." You tell 'em, Senator Kelly.
