Former Lobbyists

Lobbyists working on Capitol Hill to influence policy and legislation are required to disclose details of their contacts and pay with the U.S. House and Senate. Any organization that employs a lobbyist also has to register. Former members of Congress, former congressional staffers and former high-level regulators who now work as lobbyists — the so-called “revolving door” — are required to disclose their former positions.
