House Majority Whip Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) commended the bipartisan passage of the lobbying reform bill today. The legislation passed by a vote of 217 to 213 with 8 Democrats voting for the bill, while 20 Republicans voted against the legislation.
This legislation will hold lobbyists and Members accountable for their actions...The Lobbying Accountability and Transparency Act will help restore Americans' trust in their legislature, and I'm pleased a bipartisan group voted to solve a bipartisan problem
