Members of Congress shouldn’t cash in by becoming lobbyists!


Tell Congress to pass Al Franken’s bill to ban members of Congress from becoming lobbyists!


Senators Al Franken and Michael Bennet introduced a bill this month to ban the outrageous practice of former members of Congress cashing in as big money lobbyists.

The bill, the Close the Revolving Door Act, also:

Increases penalties for breaking the Lobbying Disclosure Act
Extends the ban on congressional staff becoming lobbyists, from only one year to six

Gives the public better online access to information about who lobbies Congress

Sign the petition: Tell Congress to pass the Close the Revolving Door Act to ban Senators and Representatives from ever becoming lobbyists.

Petition to Congress:

Serving in Congress shouldn’t be a tryout for a high-paying career as a lobbyist. Pass Senators Al Franken and Michael Bennet’s Close the Revolving Door Act without delay and ban members of Congress from becoming lobbyists.
