ABA Proposal for Lobbying Reform

The American Bar Association has approved a resolution calling for changes to federal lobbying regulation. (see this story in Politico). Interestingly, Politico quotes the head of the American League of Lobbyists as generally supportive of the resolution, except for the proposal to restrict campaign fundraising by lobbyists.

The ABA resolution stems from the report of the ABA Task Force on Lobbying Regulation, on which I served. The report of the Task Force, which was co-chaired by Trevor Potter, Charles Fried, Rebecca Gordon and Joe Sandler, can be read here.

Here is the actual resolution (h/t Rick Hasen, who also served on the Task Force).
