State Rep. Ruth Briggs King, R-Georgetown, in front, recently took part in a press conference announcing a package of five bills aimed at making state government more open and efficient. Briggs King is a prime sponsor of one of the bills. The legislation that she is sponsoring would require a two-year cooling-off period before a former legislator can act as a lobbyist.

Behind the podium are (l-r) Rep. Don Blakey, R-Dover South; Sen. Gerald Hocker, R-Ocean View; Sen. Ernie Lopez, R-Lewes; Rep. Dave Wilson, R-Bridgeville; and Rep. Deborah Hudson, R-Fairthorne.

Sounds good to me, the cooling off period! Would help stop the "good ole boy network", corruption, gravy train! Americans need to wake up.
