Update II: NAM v. Taylor

Another report says that NAM filed an amended LDA report.

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE:  The NAM’s blog states:

As the NAM continues the legal challenge, it has also decided to comply with the law in good faith; the decision has been made to file the disclosure forms with the member names. (We had originally planned to leave the names off, citing the pending litigation.) On balance, it makes sense not to complicate things at this point by inviting an enforcement action.

Because the law sets a disclosure threshold of $5,000 in lobbying expenditures, our larger member companies will comprise the list, that is, the sample is not representative of the membership.

Despite the filing, the objections remain: Section 207 Honest Leadership and Open Government Act infringes on our members’ First Amendment rights of speech, association and petitioning the government.
