Today, a meeting of the Council of Legislators of the Russian Federation was held in Saint Petersburg
The event took place in the Tauride Palace and was timed to the Day of Russian Parliamentarism, which is celebrated on April 27.
Patricipants of the meeting disscussed issues of implementation of the Address of the President to the Federal Assembly, additional measures to reduce the differentiation of regional incomes and the need to monitor the implementation of national projects.
Russian President Vladimir Putin also held a meeting with the Council of Legislators of the Russian Federation. The President voiced his proposals for development of parliamentarism and improvement of Russian legislation.
The Council of Legislators of the Russian Federation under the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation is an advisory and consultative body to the chambers of the Russian parliament –Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation.
The Council of Legislators of the Russian Federation was established in 2012 to coordinate legislative support for the implementation of state policy in the sphere of separation of powers in the areas of exclusive jurisdiction of the Russian Federation and issues of joint jurisdiction of the Russian Federation and Russian regions, as well as improving the implementation of the supervisory powers of the Federation Council, the State Duma and legislative (representative) bodies of the Russian regions, the organization of their interaction in the legislative process and the exchange of parliamentary experience.
The chairpersons of chambers of the Federal Assembly co-chair the Council of Legislators.

Trump Has Shot America On 5th Avenue and Republicans Allowed It!
Remember when #DonaldTrump said he could shoot someone on #5thAvenue and no one would care? Well, that’s what he’s done to America! And so have the #Republicans !
Why in the world did we work our butts off to elect #democratic#legislators only to be told to shut up and sit down? We’ve been lied to and put members of Congress’s lives in danger.
We have people rounded up, deported, #children separated, liars lying everyday and #America upside down and being run by God knows who? The #coverup is beyond belief. People who tell truths get threatned? What the hell is happening and what comes next?
We now have a #dictatorship . #Trump is above the law. He isn’t crazy. He‘s #obstructed , #lied , been #immoral , #authoritarian and in plain sight.
Every legislator should stay in or return back to #Washington as we‘re paying them to run this country and if we haven’t completely been taken over by either the #Mob or #Russia or both, then we sure appear as if we have. We‘re on the edge of the fall of America.
How do we even know without #Mueller or the #investigators that we even have the REAL report? We don’t.
This is bad. This has to be more than one man.
Have we fallen? #Democrats and lovers of the #Constitution cannot allow #Barr and the #JusticeDept . to get away with this. Our leaders are acting as though we‘re serving under a #King or #Dictator . Writing letters to power wrongdoers are being thrown away. Not answering questions is their norm. The Mob or whoever they are, snub their noses at the thought of our elected officals trying to hold them accountable. Our party is acting like these are regular political times. They are NOT and they‘re not being given any more consideration at the capitol than any one of us. They too are being treated as peasants. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!!!
My bill to reduce the revolving door of #legislators from becoming #lobbyists has passed unanimously in the Maine State Legislature!
LD 76, “An Act to Strengthen the Integrity of the Legislature,” passed the #Senate unanimously on Tuesday, and the #House of Representatives followed suit on Thursday. We must limit the undue influence lobbyists have over our #government , and nothing speaks to this issue more than #lawmakers and lobbyists swapping roles. Closing this loophole will ensure former lawmakers will have to follow #transparency and #ethics rules and hopefully discourage them from getting a lucrative #lobbying gig so soon after they leave elected office. Current law allows former legislators to immediately become lobbyists at the conclusion of their legislative service as long as it’s less than 8 hours a month. Moreover, they don’t have to register as a paid lobbyist. LD 76 would close this loophole by requiring a full year waiting period before any compensated lobbying could take place. Back in 2017, the Maine Ethics Commission voted to recommend a similar solution to bar all lobbying by former legislators in the first year after their tenure ends. This bill is modeled on their suggestion. After a few procedural votes, the bill heads to the Governor’s desk for her signature to become law. This bill is part of larger #campaignfinance#reform package I've introduced as a member of the Senate Ethics Committee.
Its an eventful day for our members as part of our spring Behind the Scenes at the Capitol event! School board members have traveled to Lansing to advocate for public education and engage with legislators! #MASB
Welcome back Congress!!Congratulations to Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats in the majority. A warm welcome to Washington goes out to all those newly minted wide-eyed freshman coming here to get things done. We look forward to working with you! Don’t let the facial expression fool you...we are happy that you’re here but sober to the task load placed on your shoulders. Many freshman have come and gone (we have witness both comings and goings). The look is one of deep understanding and empathy for what you are now wading into. Many of you won’t survive the swamp and many more of you may never leave!!!! #capitolhill#politics#legislators#majority#congress#washingtondc#democrats#nancypelosi
