WASHINGTON, D.C. — Should members of Congress be banned from lobbying jobs after they return to private life?
Maine Rep. Jared Golden says they should.
The Democrat representing Maine’s 2nd Congressional District has proposed legislation that would prohibit former members of Congress from lobbying any congressional members.
If his legislation becomes law, anyone violating it could face up to a $50,000 fine and/or imprisonment.
The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to consider the proposed amendment later this week.
