AUGUSTA — Maine lawmakers who look to take up lobbying after their state service would be subject to new rules if a bill approved by the Legislature is signed by the governor.

The Senate on Tuesday gave final approval to the bill and sent it to Gov. Paul LePage. It would prohibit a former legislator from engaging in activities that would require registration as a lobbyist or lobbyist associate until one year after that person’s term as a legislator ends.

The restriction would begin with the next Legislature.

The bill does not prohibit uncompensated lobbying.
