A free service of Lobbyists.info, the Lobby Blog seeks to provide timely, informative snippets of useful content and conversation on the federal lobbying community: from lobbying and lobbyists to ethics, campaign finance, and pay to play law.
We will post Lobbying News – whether it’s a short snippet of an article from a DC publication or an update on lobbying in the fifty states. And we’ll keep you up to date on Moves and Changes in the lobbying community.
Our Ethics Tips will give you a short, easy-to-read weekly refresher on ethics and lobbying.
At Lobbyists.info, we have a staff of editors and researchers who are constantly coming across ways that lobbyists can clarify or improve their filings. So in From the Eyes of an Editor, we’ll look at things that lobbyist-registrants constantly get wrong – and how to improve.
The intersection of money and politics is constantly in the news, and undergoing new regulation. So in our Campaign Finance section, we’ll keep you up to date the ever-changing campaign finance world.
Weekly, we’ll do a Lobbying News Round-Up of the things you should be reading. And we might even throw in a few Celebrity Lobbyist spottings.
Keep checking back for updates! We’re looking forward to posting.
Just a little about us:
Lobbyists.info is the one-stop resource for information on lobbying and Government Relations. The site consists of three main components: Washington Representatives Online, US Congress Online and The Lobbying Compliance Center.
Washington Representatives Online, is the online directory of all federally registered lobbyists and their clients, including the legislative areas they are registered to lobby under. This database also has contact information for PACs, 527 Groups, think tanks and government legislative affairs offices. US Congress Online, is the online database of all members of the US Congress and their staffs. Profiles include complete contact information, photos, maps, biographies and more. The Compliance Center is the resource for all things compliance – from filing forms to FAQs on lobbying ethics and technical questions and HLOGA compliance training. The Compliance Center is also home to The Lobbying Compliance Handbook.
