Stop the revolving door on state contracts!

Urge North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore to pass Senate Bill 419 before lawmakers leave town.

The problem: In recent years, several high-level employees have left state government to go to work for businesses with whom they had been negotiating lucrative state contracts – raising troubling questions about conflicts of interest and how our tax dollars are spent.

The solution: Senate Bill 419 would help guard against these conflicts of interest by enacting a six-month “cooling-off period” for state employees that administer a state contract and then leave their job to work for the vendor with that contract. During those first six months, the former state employee would not be permitted to administer a state contract on behalf of their new employer.

Dear Speaker Moore,

Please pass Senate Bill 419 before lawmakers leave town. With lawmakers about to end their session for the year, we need to act before it's too late and demand they pass a common-sense bill to guard against conflicts of interest in state contracts.
