White House Fact Sheet on reform proposals

The White House released a fact sheet referencing the administration’s proposals on lobbying, campaign finance, and earmark tracking.  The release is here.   On lobbyists, the fact sheet provides:

During the campaign, the President voluntarily declined to accept contributions from federally-registered lobbyists. It’s time this practice became law. That’s why the President is calling upon Congress to establish low-dollar limits on the contributions lobbyists may bundle or make to candidates for federal office. Those carefully-tailored limits would ensure that lobbyists can’t unduly influence the system to favor the special interests over the public interest.
