LaHood Files “Revolving Door” Bill

State Senator DarinLaHoodTo some people, it’s bad enough if it simply looks bad. That’s the case, says local State Senator Darin LaHood, when the news comes out that Jack Lavin transformed himself from governor’s chief of staff to casino and medical-marijuana lobbyist in months.

LaHood has filed “revolving door” restrictions every year since he has been in Springfield, but the bills have gotten nowhere. He says he is encouraged, now that his latest attempt has a Democratic co-sponsor.
