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.
