LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels still is waiting to find out whether he'll be able to lobby the state Legislature next year when he takes over as president of Purdue University.
The Journal & Courier reports that the state inspector general has not yet ruled whether Daniels will be covered by Indiana's "revolving door" law.
State ethics rules require a one-year "cool down" for public officials after leaving office. Daniels asked the inspector general for an informal advisory opinion in June, after he was selected by Purdue trustees.
Daniels said if the law is unclear, he would "lean" against lobbying in his first year at Purdue. Daniels plans to take office at the school in West Lafayette in January after completing his second term as governor.
