Online no lobbyist gift list proposed in Oklahoma

An Oklahoma legislator proposes a novel approach to avoid receiving lobbyists’ gifts here.

As a way of helping legislators avoid going to these lengths to return gifts, I believe an online no gift list would draw a clear line in the sand by which legislators and lobbyists could establish a firm relationship based on professionalism. I also believe it would start putting an end to the perception that all legislators and lobbyists engage in an inappropriate game of quid-pro-quo.
