Monday, February 13: Lobbyists and Reform

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – The First Amendment of the US Constitution guarantees the right to "petition the Government for a redress of grievances." This right has bred professional lobbyists, who play an important role in the working of both national and state legislative bodies. Doug Fabrizio talks to Kirk Jowers of the Hinckley Institute of Politics, Ron Hrebenar, author of "Interest Group Politics in America," and lawmakers about who lobbyists are, and what steps must be taken to impose ethical standards in the wake of high-profile scandals.
