TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A former congressman from New Jersey has registered as a lobbyist.

But under ethics laws, Rob Andrews will not be allowed to lobby current members of Congress until February, when he will have been out of office a year.

The southern New Jersey Democrat resigned in February after 23 years in Congress to join the Philadelphia-based law firm Dilworth Paxson. He filed papers to be a lobbyist last week.

Andrews tells the Courier-Post (https://on.cpsj.com/Q9MwR4 ) that he will follow all the ethics rules for lobbyists.

His two clients are the National Coordinating Committee for Multiemployer Plans and M.E.R.I.T., a Newark-based security firm.
