CCP Chairman Brad Smith to testify on grassroots lobbying before House subcommittee

CCP Chairman Brad Smith will be in Washington, D.C. tomorrow to testify before the House Judiciary Constitution subcommittee on proposed grassroots lobbying disclosure legislation.

From Roll Call ($):

"[Smith] is slated to testify and said he will focus on opposing grass-roots lobbying disclosure on principle. ‘If there’s anything people show they’re concerned about, it’s not that citizens are contacting Washington too much,’ he said. ‘The purpose of disclosure is to inform the citizens of what government is doing — it’s not to inform the government of what citizens are doing.’"
