TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A proposed Florida Ethics Commission advisory opinion says Attorney General Bill McCollum cannot lobby the governor and Cabinet members for at least two years after leaving office.
The commission will consider the staff-recommended opinion Oct. 22.
It says he cannot lobby the governor or members of the Florida Cabinet members, which includes the attorney general, individually or collectively or the agencies they jointly oversee.
McCollum could, though, lobby the governor's and Cabinet members' staff except for the attorney general's office and Cabinet aides.
The commission did not honor a request by McCollum to keep his name off the opinion.
McCollum ran for governor this year but lost in the Republican primary.
