Arkanasas: No Cooling Off

In Arkansas, the revolving door between state office and lobbying does not have any cooling off period.  This report has more.

Thirty states mandate a period of time that must elapse before a former legislator can represent clients before the Legislature. The National Conference of State Legislatures says these cooling-off periods are intended to keep former legislators from using their government connections to benefit themselves or their business interests after they leave office.
