Former Indiana senator Bayh takes job with U.S chamber

June 7, 2011

Former Democratic Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh has taken a new position with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Bayh's new position will be to analyze and promote ways to reduce government regulation, according to iwatch News.

Republican Andrew Card, a former chief of staff to President George W. Bush, will also work as an outside adviser to the chamber, the nation's largest pro-business advocacy group.

Bayh says his new job will not involve lobbying.

Bayh decided against seeking a third term in the Senate in 2010. Since then, he has become a partner in the Washington office of the McGuireWoods law firm, a senior adviser to a New York-based private equity firm and a political commentator on Fox News.
