ABSTRACT
The article provides a model of the regulation of lobbyists in measuring the demands for the legislation to legislature. Lobbying in the special interest model of government allows legislators to pass special interest legislation in exchange of benefits like campaign votes for re-election. The regulation of lobbyists limits lobbying to more relevant issues and makes it more expensive to enter the lobbying industry.
