Proposed Bill Would Stop the Hiring of Lobbyists

Saturday, February 6, 2016

 

 

House Bill 68 would stop executive branch agencies that receive General Fund or education budget money from hiring lobbyists. Bill sponsor, Representative Danny Garrett of Trussville says his bill wouldn’t apply to colleges or universities because the University of Alabama and Auburn University have constitutionally created boards and the legislation may not apply to them as it would to other schools. Garrett says he wants to have face-to-face talks with agencies, appropriating taxpayer money.
