This book covers the fast-changing landscape of campaign finance and lobbying laws. The sixth edition offers an introduction and a summary of the basic principles. Numerous court decisions and new laws dramatically altered the ways in which groups, including corporations, could lawfully finance political activity outside of the political parties and the candidates. Independent advertisers and super political action committees (PACs) have new roles and new rules since the last edition (2006). Contribution limits have changed and aggregate limits on individuals have been eliminated. In addition, the Lobbying Disclosure Act, as well as new congressional ethics rules, have increased compliance burdens for persons engaged in lobbying and government relations.
