"On the coattails of the Wall Street Reform bill, Kilroy’s Lobbying Disclosure Enhancement Act (H.R. 5751) would establish a Task Force to bolster enforcement of rules for federal lobbyists and special interest groups. The bill passed the House unanimously by voice vote today and is on its way to the Senate. “When Americans on Main Street try to cheat or break the law, there are repercussions; but for years, there was no way to hold lobbyists accountable for games they play with their disclosures,” said Kilroy. “The Lobbying Disclosure Enhancement Act establishes a task force that will go after lobbyists who engage in shoddy reporting practices and hide behind ignorance of the law.” The Lobbying Disclosure Enhancement Act directs the Attorney General to establish a task force with the ability to investigate and prosecute cases referred to the U.S. Attorney’s office for D.C. under the existing Lobbying Disclosure Act."
