Senate GOP veteran Rob Epplin has launched his own lobbying and consulting firm.
The firm Epplin Strategic Planning was born, Epplin says, mostly "to answer the question: ‘Can I do this on my own?'"
In his first weeks, he registered the Human Rights Campaign and the National Association of Broadcasters--two clients he worked with at Gephardt Government Affairs.
After retiring from Capitol Hill in 2012, Epplin faced a “cooling off” period--required by ethics laws--in which he could not lobby his former colleagues. During this time, he and Gephardt traveled and met potential clients.
Epplin served as a legislative director for Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) for three years and worked in several policy areas including appropriations, defense, tax and financial issues.
