Rep. Traci Koster

Lawmakers are poised this year to pass a measure that would implement part of a 2018 constitutional amendment that bars judges and justices from lobbying for six years after leaving the bench.

The measure, PCB PIE 22-02, would implement a portion of Amendment 12, a government ethics measure proposed by the Constitution Revision Commission that voters approved by a 79% margin in 2018. The portion that applies to justices and judges takes effect December 31, 2022.
