Earmark change and the lobbying biz

The Hill reports on the impact of various iterations of an earmark ban could have on lobbying.

The earmark ban “is going to lead to long-term change on K Street,” said Michael Herson, the president of American Defense International, one of the largest defense consulting and lobbying firms in Washington. “You will have to be able to perform a broader service rather than just get earmarks. The focus would shift to the policy and the bigger picture.”

Earmarks are also the topic of this report.
