Lobbying in the US – The Basics

Lobbying in the US is very different from lobbying in Australia, and US grassroots lobbying is different again, but these three articles make some good points about the basics of lobbying everywhere:

If you want to know more about lobbying in the US you could do worse than check out the blog on these pages: http://www.lobbyists.info/, and if you want to know how bad and dark corporate lobbying can get in the US, get hold of this documentary and watch it several times – you’ll have trouble believing what you are seeing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casino_Jack_and_the_United_States_of_Money … Mike Smith has a copy he might loan.

But, if you actually want to know how to lobby in the US, you can’t go past this book as a sound, thorough and well-rounded primer  http://www.amazon.com/Influence-Game-Insider-Washington-Lobbying/dp/1118271599/.

One major similarity between Australia and the US: each State and National jurisdiction has a different set of rules relating to lobbying registration, gift-giving and interaction with Government.
