Promoting the Unbiased Role of Employees in the Executive Act or the PURE Executive Act

This bill expands restrictions on post-employment lobbying for senior executive branch personnel.

Specifically, the bill prohibits senior personnel (e.g., deputy secretaries) and very senior personnel (e.g., cabinet members) from lobbying agencies for five years after their employment ends. The bill also prohibits such personnel from lobbying on behalf of foreign entities, including foreign corporations, at any time after their employment ends. Currently, senior and very senior personnel may not lobby agencies for one year and two years post-employment, respectively, and may not lobby on behalf of foreign governments or political parties for one year post-employment.
