The Lobbying Manual, Fourth Edition provides the reader with a detailed map for compliance with all applicable laws. Complete with dozens of real-world examples, this book guides the attorney through the maze of federal laws and regulations that pertain to lobbying. This 2011 Supplement provides updates and new material including guidance to the Lobbying Disclosure Act issued by the Secretary of the Senate and the Clerk of the House of Representatives from June 2009 to June 2011; the various Obama Administration initiatives pertaining to registered lobbyists; the opinion of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in National Association of Manufacturers v. Taylor; and a variety of other clarifications and important recent developments. Chapter 21, on federal campaign finance, has been substantially rewritten and updated to reflect changes in the law, including the impact of the landmark 2010 Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. That chapter now also incorporates the material of Chapter 22 dealing with lobbyist bundling of campaign contributions, bringing together in one place all of the material pertaining to the federal law of bundling. The book features several entirely new chapters: one on the Obama Ethics Pledge, another on "honest services" fraud, and two dealing with the practice of lobbying, including perspectives on the lobbying profession and the Noerr-Pennington doctrine. There is also an entirely new Part V with two chapters offering comparative perspectives on, respectively, the lobbying laws of Canada and those of the European Community and its members. These should be of significant interest to practitioners whose clients do business abroad.
