The Ethics Board advises that:
(1) Consistent with statutes administered by the Ethics Board, a public
official may negotiate terms and conditions of employment with a new
employer, even a lobbying principal, after the effective date of the official's
resignation from the official's state agency even though the official is
scheduled to continue to receive salary for accumulated vacation and
sabbatical leave until a later date.
(2) The revolving door provisions of §19.45(8)(a) prohibit a state public
official's representing a private organization for compensation before either
the agency or board with which the official was associated as a state public
official prior to one year after the official's resignation.
