Orszag Blogs About Lobbyists

Pardon me for missing, until now, Peter Orszag’s post (excerpt below) on “OMBlog” entitled, “Closing Lobbyists Loopholes.”  Interesting title.

Contacts by registered lobbyists prior to the filing of a formal application remain subject to the previously announced restrictions, which require rapid Internet disclosure of the contact.  These rules are by far the toughest ever and go well beyond the minimum disclosures previously required by law.  To make that disclosure more consistent, the White House shortly will provide departments and agencies with a new technology tool – so that thorough reporting and information standards will be easily accessible for anyone to see.
