Senators Propose Lifetime Ban on Lobbying

Sens. Michael Bennet (D-CO) and Jon Tester (D-MT) "introduced legislation to prevent members of Congress from becoming lobbyists after they retire," The Hill reports.

"Current law allows senators to become lobbyists two years after leaving office, while House members only have to wait for a year. But Bennet and Tester's bill would institute a lifetime ban on lobbying for lawmakers."
