By now, you have almost certainly heard that the ethics bill passed by Congress in 2007 – the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act (“HLOGA”) – placed new restrictions on lobbyists and required more reporting and disclosure from the organizations that employ them.  Charitable and other section 501(c)(3) organizations are not exempt from federal lobbying laws, so it is vitally important that your organization understands its new obligations.
