Drazkowski successful in blocking legislators from working for lobbyists!
Last year Representative Drazkowski was successful in his bi-partisan work to PREVENT legislators in Minnesota from working for a lobbyist firm. Thanks to Steve’s efforts with an amendment to the Omnibus Tax Bill, it is now ILLEGAL for a lawmaker to serve in St. Paul and be employed by a lobbying firm. Representative Drazkowski has ELIMINATED the evident conflict of interest that has long plagued the Capitol in St. Paul. Years of unethical and unprincipled governance has now come to an end as a result of Steve’s leadership.
119 Democrats and Republican legislators supported Representative Drazkowski’s amendment. 11 Republican lawmakers DID NOT VOTE on this necessary legislation.
