This free resource book includes a discussion of the ways in which local lobbying differs from state and federal lobbying; a look at the all-important definitions of what constitutes "lobbying" and who is a "lobbyist"; an in-depth review of the disclosure requirements and the obligations and prohibitions that local governments have instituted; and a consideration of the oversight and enforcement processes that will ensure that local lobbying is done openly and without improper conduct. Included in this book is a Model Lobbying Code for local governments, which sets out best practices.
