The bill discusssed in yesterday’s Times amending the Foreign Agents Registration Act is apparently S. 3123. I cannot locate the text online but Thomas should have it shortly. The description on Thomas reads: “A bill to require lobbyists who represent foreign politicians or political parties and foreign entities to register under Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938.” Until the text is available, it is not certain if the other provision (dealing with foreign-owned companies) mentioned in yesterday’s article is in the proposed law. The bill was introduced by Senator Schumer with Senators McCaskill and Obama as cosponsors.
UPDATE: Here is a link to the main THOMAS site if the above link does not work. From the main site, enter “S.3123” and click the search by bill number option. The text is still not available as of this writing, however.
