Norm Eisen on lobbyist ban on boards and commissions

The White House’s Norm Eisen writes about the administration ban on lobbyists serving on boards and commissions here.

While we recognize the contributions some of those who will be affected have made to these committees, it is an indisputable fact that in recent years, lobbyists for major special interests have wielded extraordinary power in Washington DC, resulting in a national agenda too often skewed in favor of the interests that can afford their services.  It is that problem that the President has promised to change, and this is a major step in implementing that change.
