Got a letter from email today that pointed out some problems with Senate Bill 1. There is a section numbered 220 that looks to limit how much NRA or any other group can inform us about things we need to contact our lawmakers on. Go to http://thomas.loc.gov to read more about it and see if your take is the same as mine. Sounds like we need to let our senators know we don't like this part of the bill. Here is the text of this section: S.1 To provide greater transparency in the legislative process. (Placed on Calendar in Senate) SEC. 220. DISCLOSURE OF PAID EFFORTS TO STIMULATE GRASSROOTS LOBBYING. (a) Definitions- Section 3 of the Act (2 U.S.C. 1602) is amended-- (1) in paragraph (7), by adding at the end of the following: `Lobbying activities include paid efforts to stimulate grassroots lobbying, but do not include grassroots lobbying.'; and (2) by adding at the end of the following: `(17) GRASSROOTS LOBBYING- The term `grassroots lobbying' means the voluntary efforts of members of the general public to communicate their own views on an issue to Federal officials or to encourage other members of the general public to do the same. `(18) PAID EFFORTS TO STIMULATE GRASSROOTS LOBBYING- `(A) IN GENERAL- The term `paid efforts to stimulate grassroots lobbying' means any paid attempt in support of lobbying contacts on behalf of a client to influence the general public or segments thereof to contact one or more covered legislative or executive branch officials (or Congress as a whole) to urge such officials (or Congress) to take specific action with respect to a matter described in section 3(8)(A), except that such term does not include any communications by an entity directed to its members, employees, officers, or shareholders. `(B) PAID ATTEMPT TO INFLUENCE THE GENERAL PUBLIC OR SEGMENTS THEREOF- The term `paid attempt to influence the general public or segments thereof' does not include an attempt to influence directed at less than 500 members of the general public.
