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.
