Lobbying is an effective means by which advocates can have their voices heard and effect change at all levels of government. But with it comes unique challenges and ethical considerations. The first part of this lunchtime panel discussion will look the unique roles that lawmakers and lobbyists each play in advancing legislation. Specific attention will be paid to the recent passage of the Research Dogs and Cats Adoption Act. The second part of the discussion will examine the ethical issues pertaining to lobbying and legislating in the State of Illinois. Leading this discussion will be lobbyist Dave Marsh, who was instrumental in shepherding the Research Dog and Cat Bill through the Illinois General Assembly, along with the bill?s sponsor, State Senator Linda Holmes (D-Aurora).
