No one happy with national lobbying reform

An article in this morning's Houston Chronicle indicates no one is particularly happy with the lobbying reform bill passed by the U. S. House of Representatives. The only major change is the requirement that lobbyists file reports quarterly instead of twice a year.
Some Congressmen are complaining because of the bill's temporary ban on lobbyist-funded travel. The bill is a weak response to a growing problem.
