If enacted, Warren’s ambitious measure would:

  • Completely ban foreign lobbying;
  • Bar members of Congress and congressional candidates from accepting campaign donations from lobbyists;
  • Require the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) release the tax returns for federal candidates, including the president and vice president;
  • “Padlock the revolving door” by imposing a lifetime ban on lobbying by former presidents, members of congress, and agency chiefs;
  • Ban members of Congress from owning and trading individual stock; and
  • Establish an “independent anti-corruption agency dedicated to enforcing federal ethics laws.”
