WarCry - New Illinois law bans employers from conducting background checks on interviewees - Quincy, IL News
That's interesting, because I've worked for 3 different Fortune 500 companies, and every time I've interviewed FIRST, and then, if they wanted to hire me, that's when they did the background checks. So, major, successful businesses in their actual hiring practices versus guy on the internet saying it should be done differently.. Which to believe, which to believe.....

Interview time is much more costly than a criminal background check. Successful people know that.

I am much more cynical than I am naive. There is such a thing as "contempt" which is what should be used here. Disturbances by cell phone users happens all across the planet - no reason why court rooms should be exempt.

Former congressman and transportation secretary, who isn't a lawyer, says he's also not a lobbyist

PEORIA — He's not a lawyer, but that hasn't stopped Ray LaHood from getting a gig at a multinational law firm.
The longtime Peoria congressman and erstwhile secretary of transportation has started work as a senior policy adviser at DLA Piper's Washington, D.C., and Chicago offices, he said Tuesday.
His work there will focus on helping clients answer the question of "how to implement good policy through good planning and strategic planning, and having kind of a long-range view," LaHood said.
"They were looking for somebody to bring the kind of transportation and infrastructure expertise where they can advise clients on those matters, but also hopefully use some of my international experience — having served on the (House) Intelligence Committee ... and in the administration — to bring some value to their clients," he said.
Don't call it lobbying by any stretch, though.
"One of the things I made very clear to everybody that I talk to, I do not want to be a lobbyist, I'm not going to be a lobbyist," he said. "I'm not going to be calling up my former colleagues who are serving and asking for meetings."
