CHARLESTON, West Virginia: Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee of the West Virginia State Senate passed HB 2464 on February 17 to prohibit the "revolving door" of legislators, elected officials and top administrative staffers becoming lobbyists as soon as they leave their government jobs. HB 2464 says they have to wait a year before they can become lobbyists. On a 7-6 vote, the committee amended HB 2464 so that it doesn't apply to anyone who is currently in office, including themselves.[1]
