Republican former Sen. Jon Kyl, who didn’t seek reelection in 2012, has joined lobbying powerhouse Covington & Burling, Politico reports.

Kyl, who retired in January, will be advising clients and working with Covington’s government affairs team as he waits out the two-year period during which ethics laws prohibit him from lobbying….

As a former member of the Senate Finance Committee and Senate Judiciary Committee, Kyl will advise Covington clients on two of the biggest issues of the year — tax reform and immigration reform. He also will be working on issues related to health care and intellectual property.

Covington & Burling’s lobbying clients include PhRMA, the American Bankers Association, Microsoft, the NFL, and BP America.

Kyl, Politico reports, will also stay on as a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, where I serve as a visiting fellow.

Through the post-2012 election revolving door, Hutchison follows Senators Ben Nelson (D-Neb.), and Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Tex.).
