Former Senate aide now lobbying for CPA organization

Caught Our Eye Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Tuesday, July 26, 2016

The association for professional bean counters has added a former Senate aide to its team of lobbyists.

Amanda Niehenke has come to Washington to register as a lobbyist with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants after spending two years working for Sen. Jim Risch (R-Idaho) in the state. Niehenke served Risch as a constituent services representative since graduating from the University of Idaho in 2014.

American Vaping Association lobbying Congress amid new FDA regulations

Caught Our Eye Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Monday, July 25, 2016
In a town known for blowing smoke, an association is taking a different approach with its lobbying. The American Vaping Association has filed its first federal lobbying disclosure in the wake of recent Food and Drug Administration regulations.

In May, the FDA rolled out regulations that would require e-cigarette manufacturers to demonstrate their products' safety and submit to an expensive approval process. The rules are set to go into effect Aug. 8.

The American Vaping Association, founded in 2013, is lobbying on issues related to "vapor products" and the FDA.

I have found LegiStorm essential for my job and quite surprising in its capabilities. For an arts presentation I needed to give on Capitol Hill, I was able to automatically download key arts staffers associated with all members of the Congressional Arts Caucus. I also able to find staff with "art" in their education backgrounds, so they got invited too. Definitely fun, and useful.

We have found LegiStorm to be the ultimate tool in communicating with congressional offices, either individually or with a group. We have been able to reach out with messages to all chiefs of staff and legislative directors, or staff dedicated to specific areas. We believe that this ability was instrumental in passing two key pieces of legislation which were imperative to our members.

The data provided by LegiStorm stands out as the best Congressional data available. The accuracy and organization of LegiStorm's data has meant that I've been able to greatly speed up progress on my research. I have no hesitation in recommending LegiStorm to all types of researchers, journalists, lobbyists and other political professionals.
