Bill Emmerson to oversee hospital association lobbying
Sacramento Bee

A month after announcing plans to step down in the middle of his term as state senator, Bill Emmerson has been named a senior vice president of the California Hospital Association.

State law forbids lawmakers from lobbying the Legislature for a year after leaving office. But it doesn’t stop them from directing an organization’s lobbying operation, which is what Emmerson will do for the hospital association based in Sacramento.
