ABSTRACT
The article discusses the various laws in U.S. States to control lobbying. In the State of Alabama, any person who corruptly attempts to influence any member of the legislature to cast a vote, to speak for or against a measure or to abstain from either, or to remain absent from a session, is guilty of a felony and punishable by a fine of not less than U.S. $500 and imprisonment for not less than two years. In Arizona, any person who seeks to obtain money or other thing of value on the representation of improperly influencing a member of a legislative body on any legislative matter is guilty of a felony.
