This letter is in response to the proposed hiring a member of the City Council of Tacoma, Washington.

It was found that GAO suggests contacting the Attorney General for a definitive interpretation of the provisions of Title 18 with regard to the hiring. Also, contact the Clerk of the House of Representative to ascertain whether there are any House Rules that might affect the outside employment of an employee of a Congressman's staff.
