Sen. Levin, member of the Senate Governmental Affairs committee,

addressed the American League of Lobbyists in Washington on the need

for reform in regulations on lobbyists. Sen. Levin argued the

current regulations on lobbyists, originally approved in 1946,

contain loopholes and inconsistencies concerning lobbyists' conduct,

and does not deal with other types of lobbying such as that conducted

with congressional aides and staff. Sen. Levin also discussed

regulations on lobbying in the executive branch, and regulations to

ensure lobbyists of the legislative and executive branch are

registered as such. He supported regulations on the lobbying of the

staff of a member of Congress, and discussed the current

“absurdities” of methods of regulating congressional lobbying. 

The question-and-answer session is not included. close
