ICPR has worked to require lobbyists to make public the identities of their clients, the amounts spent on such lobbying activities and information about who is being lobbied. Organizations and individuals lobbying state government should be required to disclose the terms of their contracts with clients including all fees received. In addition, Illinois’ lobbying statutes should be revised to broaden the scope of lobbying and more clearly define who must register as a lobbyist. Finally, ICPR favors a “cooling off” (instead of a revolving door) period between the date an elected official or other government employee leaves office and starts to lobby former colleagues.
