Biden Unveils Ethics Rules for Transition Staff
September 30, 2020
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden unveiled new ethics rules to limit the number of registered lobbyists on his transition team, part of an effort to avoid conflicts of interest as the team begins planning for a possible Biden presidency. Under the new rules released on Wednesday, members of Mr. Biden’s transition team must commit to not working on policy matters that might represent a financial conflict of interest. Transition staff are also barred from buying or selling individual stocks without approval.
