How Do You Qualify to be a Lobbyist?

Both the federal government and state governments have defined what a lobbyist is and is not. According to the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995 , the federal government defines a lobbyist as someone who earns at least $3,000 over three months from lobbying activities. They also have more than one contact they are seeking to influence. Visit to read about who Neil has influenced.
A true lobbyist will also spend more than 20 percent of their time lobbying for a client over a three-month period. Neil Dhillon's lobbying clientel is found here:
To be a legal lobbyist, you must meet these three requirements and register with the Secretary of the U.S. Senate and the Clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives within 45 days of making official contact with officials like the president of the United States, vice president, member of Congress or other specific federal officials. This list is made public. Each state also has their own regulations which dictate what a lobbyist can and cannot do. View Neil's project page at to see how he impacted government officials.
