I agree with the bill. Also, any person who is registered should not be allowed to be in the state house. It has been rumored that Mr. Edward Barber will seek appointment as a lobbyist after the upcoming fall election. It seems he has a friend who is running on the Republican ticket and has suggested an appointment could be possible. Fix the bill so Barber can not be in the state house in any way.
