Members Hit Former Staffers Who Lobby

According to this Roll Call report, several members of Congress are concerned that former government employees have left their jobs and now represent foreign producer interests.

“At any time, but certainly in this time of economic crisis, we must question the appropriateness of those who have been involved in the formulation of our nation’s trade policies, who use the knowledge and contacts gained in government in a manner adverse to the interests of domestic producers,” reads the letter, which is signed by Rules Chairwoman Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.), among others.
