A House bill that hopes to put the kybosh on backroom hiring by job hunting legislators is on its way to becoming law. Thursday, the Oregon House passed the bill with a unanimous vote; the measure would ban lawmakers from taking most state government jobs until a year after leaving the Legislature. Representative Jason Conger of Bend thinks the bill is a good idea: “It’s primarily aimed at revolving door time situations where Legislators may have at least a real or perceived conflict of interest in passing legislation that ends up getting them a job after."  The legislation was sparked in part by two appointments in 2009 of Democratic lawmakers in the Portland area. Margaret Carter, who co-chaired the Legislatures’ Budget Committee, was appointed to a state job that paid about $122,000. And Larry Galizio received a state job that paid $95,000. Both jobs were newly created positions.
