pain-in-the-neck for many.
The measure, which cleared
the House last week by a 421-0
vote, requires all lobbyists to reg-
ister with the government and

"As far as I can see, the disclo-
sure requirements don't seem
more onerous than current law,"

The House rejected a number
of amendments that threatened
to stall the legislation, including
a controversial proposal by Rep.
Ernest Jim Istook, R-Okla., that
would bar federal funding to
groups that include Capitol Hill
advocacy among their activities.
That proposal would have a
major impact on groups like the

— but also maintain political ad-

and in state capitals.
But the Istook amendment is
far from dead.
"There are tremendous pres-
sures driving this proposal," said
Diana Aviv, Washington direc-
tor for CJ F. "There are people in
the congressional leadership who
still regard this as a top priority.
So it would be a major mistake
to assume that we've heard the
last from Istook."
