By greatly expanding the scope of lobbying regulation, the grassroots lobbying bills (H.R. 4682  and S.1) would affect many churches, pastors, denominations, public interest organizations, law firms, radio and TV personalities, civic organizations, nonprofit and for-profit organizations, the media, and private individuals that voluntarily choose to pay for any medium to distribute their message to the general public.  The Senate passed an amendment on January 18th removing the troubling language from its measure. The legislation restricting the free speech of churches and non-profits is expected to be introduced into the House soon.

The ACLJ has extensively researched the legislation and has produced a detailed legal analysis of the impact of these measures.
