Who regulates lobbying?
The Secretary of the Senate and the Clerk of the House of Representatives oversee federal lobbying. According to the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995, those offices are charged with providing guidance on lobbying disclosure, ensuring the timeliness and accuracy of required reports, and making those reports available to the public.
According to a Center for Public Integrity report, nearly 14,000 documents that should have been filed periodically with the Senate Office of Public Records are missing.
Forty-nine out of the top 50 lobbying firms failed to file required forms during the last six years.
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
