OUR POSITION - Lobbying and Revolving Doors

13 October 2021

Australia’s federal lobbying regulation is weak compared with both international and state and territory standards. Revolving door cooling-off periods are rarely enforced and carry no real punishments. This means there is very little to stop wealthy individuals and companies from getting special access to policymakers and shaping our laws for personal gain.

We need stronger checks and balances to ensure our federal government governs in the public’s best interest, always.
