Public Interest Groups: An Example of Pluralism?
This research was conducted from a first hand perspective. Most of the information about lobbying techniques was collected while I was working as a lobbyist for Common Cause-Minnesota. This job provided me with a real idea of what techniques are used by an interest group to influence the political process. My information is primarily from the perspective of a public interest group, but I did get some information about other kinds of interest groups and the techniques they use from second hand sources. No formal surveys or interviews were done to compile the information. All of my observances came from lobbying legislators and participating 1n the operation of Common Cause-Minnesota.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
