Natural products lobbyist returns to Hill - naturally

Caught Our Eye Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Friday, September 23, 2016

After a five-year break to do lobbying, Mike Kelley is back on the Hill as deputy chief of staff and legislative director for Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-Ind.).

Kelley originally joined the Hill in 2008, as a staff assistant for former Rep. Steve Buyer (R-Ind.) before becoming a lobbyist for Mayer Brown and the Moffett Group. For the last year, he has worked as director of government affairs at the Natural Products Association, which represents companies making products without artificial ingredients and that are minimally processed.

Advocacy group lobbies to reverse DEA classification

Caught Our Eye Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Thursday, September 22, 2016

An advocacy group wants to (legally) unleash the kratom — a previously legal herbal drug just days away from being banned.

While the American Kratom Association claims the plant provides "increased energy, minor pain relief and many find relief from a variety of other mental and physical ailments," the DEA finds that the drug has "currently no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse."

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.

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.

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.
