Manage episode 351594239 series 3335724
Join host Shane Rolf and his guest, Kevin Barone, founding partner of The Capital Lobby Group, as they discuss the much-misunderstood and critically important role of lobbyists in the American political system. Often derided by critics for advocating on behalf of specific industries, unions, trade associations, charities and other causes, lobbyists provide a key voice to lawmakers, regulators, and other branches of government. Their advocacy helps facilitate educated public discourse on the issues involved in the creation of laws and regulations, including those involving the bail industry.
