Briggs King cosponsors bill to make state government more open

Retiring legislators could not immediately become lobbyists
April 5, 2013

State Rep. Ruth Briggs King, R-Georgetown, in front, recently took part in a press conference announcing a package of five bills aimed at making state government more open and efficient. Briggs King is a prime sponsor of one of the bills. The legislation that she is sponsoring would require a two-year cooling-off period before a former legislator can act as a lobbyist.

Behind the podium are (l-r) Rep. Don Blakey, R-Dover South; Sen. Gerald Hocker, R-Ocean View; Sen. Ernie Lopez, R-Lewes; Rep. Dave Wilson, R-Bridgeville; and Rep. Deborah Hudson, R-Fairthorne.
