Lobbying and Abuse of Office by Public Officers
The proposal would impose a six-year lobbying ban on former state elected officials, state agency heads and local elected officials. It would also
create a new ethics standard that would prohibit public officials from obtaining a “disproportionate benefit” from their actions while in office.
The exact ballot summary language reads:
"Expands current restrictions on lobbying for compensation by former public officers; creates restrictions on lobbying for compensation by currently serving public officers; provides exceptions; prohibits certain abuses of public office for personal benefit."
State and local elected officials would be banned from lobbying for six years after they leave office under a proposal headed to the November general-election ballot.
