TARP Lobbying: What’s Going On?

The Post covers proposals to limit or disclose lobbying related to the $700 billion TARP.

It remains unclear, however, how the Treasury will implement the new changes and on what timetable. The Treasury did not detail how the department plans to limit lobbyists’ contact with decision makers. It also offered few specifics about how the agency will prevent politics from playing a role in the bailout process, or precisely how it will create a more transparent and objective application review structure for troubled banks.
