Friday, July 23, 2010 at 9:12 am
Following a story in The Washington Post yesterday about the large number of oil industry lobbyists who formerly worked in the federal government, Michael Bromwich, who is in charge of restructuring the Interior Department’s offshore drilling oversight bureau, pledged to put restrictions on these so-called revolving door issues.
Speaking at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing, Bromwich said, “I’ll say right now that I’ll impose a lifetime ban on contacts with the agency, and I hope that sets an example for other people in the agency and other people throughout government,” the Post reports.
