The lobbyists are restless

Posted By on Fri, Mar 16, 2007 at 8:26 AM

Interesting item from Roby Brock about a new House rule that prohibits the venerable practice of sending in a message to a representative while the House is in session to call the lawmaker out for a chit-chat. Most of the calling is done by lobbyists, of course. The knot of hallway huddlers is a standing feature of the legislature, the crowd swelling with the importance of the legislation being discussed, or soon to be discussed.

Will this last? Not if the lobbyists have anything to say about it, I'd wager.
