The Constitutionality of Limiting Grassroots Lobbying

The Free Speech Coalition has posted a review (pdf) of the constitutionality of the anti-grassroots lobbying proposal (Section 220) Congress is considering as part of U.S. Senate Bill 1, the Legislative Transparency and Accountability Act of 2007.

The Free Speech Coalition urges support for an amendment proposed by Senator Robert Bennett (R-UT) to strike Section 220 from the legislation entirely. We concur.
