Definition of Lobbying
A direct lobbying communication is an attempt to influence legislation through communications with:
- Legislators, their staff members, or Executive Branch officials who may be involved in formulating legislation.
- The general public on a referendum, ballot initiative, or similar measure.
In either instance, the communication must refer to specific legislation and must reflect a view on the legislation to be considered lobbying.
Specific legislation refers to any act, bill, resolution, treaty, appropriations measure, or comparable item introduced in a legislative body—such as the U.S. Congress, a state legislature, a county commission, a city council, or similar group. Specific legislation may include a written legislative draft proposal that has not been formally introduced. The term may also apply to a public referendum, constitutional amendment, ballot initiative, or other measure placed on the ballot by referendum. However, specific legislation does not include regulations adopted by executive, judicial, or administrative bodies such as federal or state agencies, school boards, housing authorities, sewer and water districts, or zoning boards.
A communication reflects a view on a specific legislative proposal if it supports, opposes, or otherwise expresses an opinion regarding the proposed measure. Communication about legislation to a selected group of individuals likely to share a common view of the measure would also be considered reflecting a view.
A grassroots lobbying communication is an attempt to influence legislation by communicating with the general public, or any group in relation to specific legislation. The communication must reflect a view on the legislation and encourage the recipient to take action on the legislation.
