Tom O`Halleran on Government Reform
Extend the lobbying ban: The two-year ban on legislators returning to the Capitol as lobbyists is the right idea, but it isn't enough. I support extending the ban to five years, and including staff in the ban.
Ban luxury trips: Luxury trips paid for by special interests happen under the guise of keeping members of Congress informed. Their real purpose is to give lobbyists special access and to reward legislators for voting a certain way. Those free trips for legislators should be banned.
