Regulatory: President Obama's Policies on Lobbyists

As President Barack Obama approaches the end of his first two years in office, commentators, political allies and opponents will tally the successes and failures of his administration thus far. This analysis will focus--and appropriately so--on the major issues of the day: the economy, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and health care reform, among other topics.

At the same time, lobbyists, lawyers and other government affairs professionals will also reflect on how the president's campaign against lobbyists has affected their particular industry. And while this priority of the Obama Administration has not generated front-page headlines, there can be no doubt that it has had a significant impact on those who engage in government advocacy and on those who must ensure that advocates comply with the ever-shifting laws and rules.
