Congress has passed new rules on lobbying and disclosure of political giving. As of January 2008, the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act requires both in-house and retained lobbyists to file more frequent and detailed reports of lobbying activity with Congress. Among other reforms, Congress has also re-written federal travel and gift rules. Baker & Daniels LLP and B&D Consulting are fully compliant with the new requirements and are working with a number of organizations and companies to assist with their compliance planning.
