Sunlight on Lobbying

Dec. 3, 2013, 11:21 a.m.

Information about lobbying – the who, what and how of influence peddling – should be available online in real-time. Better lobbyist disclosure will let citizens know who is trying to shape public policy and at what price. It will also increase public confidence in the integrity of government. Current disclosure rules fail in both regards.

The Sunlight Foundation strives to improve disclosure through legislative actions and illuminating reporting projects that will shine a light on how lobbyists influence policymakers.
