The Florida House has passed a six year lobbying ban on former lawmakers. Under current state law, legislators and elected officials can’t lobby their former colleagues for two years. The new plan would extend the waiting period, and block officials from lobbying any state agency.

A new study by the National Council of State Legislatures shows Florida lawmakers would face the toughest lobbying restrictions in the county under a proposal by House Speaker Richard Corcoran.
