Railroad company's Chinese ties spur lobbying effort

Caught Our Eye Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Tuesday, August 30, 2016

A U.S. railcar manufacturer is lobbying the federal government on "railcar manufacturing" issues only weeks after members of Congress called for an investigation into the company's ties with a large Chinese railcar maker.

Last month, 55 members of Congress submitted a letter to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, requesting an investigation into ties between Vertex Railcar Corp. and the China Railroad Stock Corp., the world's largest railcar manufacturer.

Crowdsourced lobbying group introduces new advocacy model

Caught Our Eye Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Monday, August 29, 2016

Lobbyists 4 Good isn't the first crowdsourced advocacy group to lobby the federal government. But its funding methods might be unique.

According to the Lobbyists 4 Good website, the group relies on donations from individuals (no more than $5,000 per person) to fund its advocacy efforts. The group "use[s] 100% of the donations to pay the hourly fee of our lobbyists in D.C."

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.

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.
