U.S. Senate Passes Disclosing Foreign Influence in Lobbying Act
On September 29, the United States Senate passed the Disclosing Foreign Influence in Lobbying Act.
The legislation, Senate Bill 4254, amends the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995 to require those registering as federal lobbyists include in their disclosures “the name and address of each government of a foreign country (including any agency or subdivision of a foreign government, such as a regional or municipal unit of government) and foreign political party, other than the client, that participates in the direction, planning, supervision, or control of any lobbying activities of the registrant.”
The bill, which passed by unanimous consent, next moves to the U.S. House of Representatives.
