SB 1: Lobbying Accountability

S.B. 1, P.N. 718 (JUBELIRER) This would create the Lobbying Accountability Act.
A principal lobbyist, association, or similar entity would be required to register and provide the names and nature of business represented as well as any affiliated political action committees
A lobbyist would be required to register contact information and a recent photograph.
A principal would be required to file quarterly expense reports upon reaching a threshold of $2,500 of lobbying expenses. These reports would include listing spending on salaries, compensation, benefits, vehicles, bonuses, and reimbursable expenses to a person who lobbies. These reports would not require listing spending on lobbyists, lobbying staff, research and monitoring staff, attorneys at law, technical staff, publications and public relations staff, clerical and administrative staff who are exempt from registration and reporting.
The expense report would list the name of every official or employee to whom an expense was made and the value of each expense.
A lobbyist would be prohibited from serving as an officer or treasurer of a candidate’s political committee or political action committee.
A registered lobbyist would be prohibited from lobbying in conflict to the interests of another interest represented by the principal, unless this conflict is disclosed in writing to both parties and both parties provide informed consent they waives this conflict. Violating this conflict could result in a fine of $2,000 or less and prohibiting the principal or the lobbyist from lobbying for five years or less.
It would be a crime for a lobbying to create the introduction of legislation designed for the lobbyist to become employed to lobby against.
It would be a crime for a lobbyist to make a loan to an official or employee
A lobbyist who internationally fails to register or file a report or who knowingly files a false statement on a report would commit a second degree misdemeanor and could be banned from lobbying for five years or less.

Saw your blog about home loan lender - as it is along the same lines I thought I would share this link with you. We were paying far too much for family things like clothes for us and the kids, games consoles inc the new Wii and soon to be PS3, car insurance/home insurance/pet insurance, broadband, mobile phones, landline calls, home and garden items, camping equipment and utilities/loans etc - you name it, we were spending too much on it.

Then a friend of mine recommended a site called www.bargainplace.co.uk. We were able to get cheaper electricity, gas, mobile phone, broadband and loan deals at bargainplace. Thanks to my friend (and the site) I am saving something like £100 a month and can afford an extra holiday abroard each year. Booked of course on www.bargainplace.co.uk. Thanks bargainplace ;-) !!

Good blog - very interesting!! I liked it so much I'm going to share this hush hush advice with you. Ever wondered how your neighbours are driving around in their brand new BMW or Mercedes cars - with their kids dressed in all the latest named gear and foreign holidays aplenty?? Well they discovered the secret to the extra online income.

If you are looking for a free tool to attract loads of free links to your blog or website then congratulations I've got the solution for you - and it is FREE!!

My website specialises in virginia web site development and to drive traffic to my website I was searching around the internet for absolutely ages looking for SEO tools and ffa submission sites to fire my site up the Google search engine - unfortunately these doing work and in fact had the opposite affect plunging my site down the rankings like it had a heavy weight attached!!, then I signed up for this free superb traffic generating tool - I now have loads of hits to my websites/blogs and my site is shooting back up the Google rankings quicker than ever before.

Consequently this saw my affiliate commissions shoot through the roof - meaning lots of extra money coming in for my family - I bought my first Mercedes car on the proceeds of my online campaign.
Sign up now - it's free.
. Sorry if this information is of no use to you but seeing as you have the anonymous feature enabled I thought I should share this free bit of essential promotional advice with you and would hope you would do the same for me and others who want to boost their online internet income.

I hope the tool will serve you equally as well as it has me - it's free!!

Best of luck, cheers for now, dave.
