Speak Up for Good Government · Principle #7
No more conflicts of interest
Lobbyists are subject matter experts that can provide invaluable data and information to support good legislation. Conflicts of interest occur when candidates and political parties accept donations from lobbyists. Data and facts should drive policy decisions, not money. Strict conflict of interest rules can discourage this behavior.
