From the Daily News:
Campaign consultants would no longer be able to turn around and lobby those they help elect under a bill to be introduced Monday.
Bill sponsor Sen. David Valesky (D-Syracuse) argued "we need to build a firewall between political work and public service."
Any firms that provide campaign management, fundraising services, public relations, development of campaign literature and ads, and strategic advice to a campaign will be prohibited from lobbying state officials on legislation, regulatory changes, budget items and procurement of services.
The Daily News reported last week that at least 29 political consulting firms are also registered lobbyists with the state.
Those firms were paid a combined $5.1 million for election work in 2011 and 2012 and then turned around when the campaigns were over to lobby.
