A legislator should not accept money from a private organization to affect the
laws of other states and simultaneously participate in legislative discussions,
consideration, or votes in Wisconsin on the same issues. The legislator may
cure the conflict between the private employment and governmental
responsibilities by forgoing one of those relationships. Short of eliminating
the conflict, the legislator may mitigate it by withdrawing from legislative
discussions, consideration, or votes on public policy issues in Wisconsin which
the legislator is being paid to affect elsewhere.
