While experts say the lobbying and ethics reforms passed last year by North Carolina lawmakers achieved some important goals, a luncheon in downtown Raleigh June 26 will focus on the steps that remain to be taken.
Panelists at the event, titled “Lobbyists: Their Role in the Fundraising Equation,” will address existing loopholes in state law that allow lobbyists and political action committees to funnel dollars to candidates, and will explore the steps required to improve reforms.
The session, to be held at Exploris Museum, is hosted by NC Policy Watch and the Coalition for Lobbying and Government Reform and will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The luncheon is open to the public and the $10 admission includes a box lunch. Registration is required.
