Corporate practice portfolio series ; no. 25-3rd.
" ... outlines and analyzes the regulation of lobbying and lobbyists at the federal and state levels. At the federal level, the portfolio devotes considerable attention to the provisions and requirements of the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995, which greatly expanded the scope of federal lobbying registration and disclosure. The provisions of the tax code that apply to lobbying--particularly those that limit the deductibility of lobbying expenses--are also discussed at length. In addition, the portfolio addresses a number of other federal statutes and rules that affect corporate lobbyists, including the Foreign Agents Registration Act, the Byrd Amendment, congressional and executive branch gift rules, post-employment restrictions, and the Noerr-Pennington doctrine. Finally, the portfolio considers the myriad of state lobbying laws. Although every state has enacted laws governing lobbying, the scope of regulated activity varies widely. For this reason, the portfolio treats state regulation more generally, highlighting trends and common approaches to the regulation of state lobbying."
