DeVos calls for ban on free tickets, travel for Mich. lawmakers

AP Wire | 09/27/2006 | DeVos calls for ban on free tickets, travel for Mich. lawmakers:
"Republican gubernatorial candidate Dick DeVos says politicians in Michigan government shouldn't be able to accept free tickets and trips from lobbyists.

'We need a state government that works for no one but the voters,' DeVos said in a statement Wednesday. 'Under a DeVos administration, Michigan will have some of the strongest lobbying reform policies in place in order to restore faith and trust in how government is operated and ensure a solid focus on economic and job growth.'

The Ada businessman said he would ban lobbyists from providing any free tickets or trips to office holders, prohibit state contractors from giving to gubernatorial campaigns and require a three-year wait before government officials can become lobbyists."
