A serious question not an attack. - LRCA, How does the Public ferret out undue influence if the act of hiring an elected person is actually a bribe hidden by the responsibility of professional (anonymous) representation?

Proposed cap for terms gets on state ballot

An interesting metric would be 'Who listens to lobbyists - vs - Who listens to people/governmental staff.' Some state workers I know, not management - the people that actually do the job, have all kinds of great, logical, efficient, ideas about how to do a better job, save the state money and increase the efficiency of state government. Ideas that come from years of experience from working in their positions. The ideas are rarely considered or come to the surface because of antiquated or misinformed state laws/regulations/management, etc. Legislators just have to ask the folks that do the work. (Privately, not in the presence of management of course!).
