“Some Illinois lawmakers – including Elaine Nekritz, Christine Radogno and Tim Bivins – recently resigned or announced they will not run for re-election. Any options they may have for their next steps could even include lobbying for the time being, under the state’s revolving door policy.
Current policy says state employees cannot accept a job from other entities that were part of state contracts for one year after they leave their state job. Executive branch employees are not able to become lobbyists for one year after they leave their state job.
Sarah Brune, with the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform, says that was mandated by Gov. Bruce Rauner early in his term.”
