Transcript of Simeon M
The lobbying profession is a legitimate and integral part of our democratic political process that is not very well understood by the general population.
A lobbyist is an activist who seeks to
persuade members of the government.
The act of attempting to influence decisions made by officials in the government.
Lobbyists represent just about every
American institution and interest group.
Lobbyists come from all walks of life.
Most are college graduates, and many have advanced degrees.
While most people think of lobbyists only as paid professionals, there are also many volunteer lobbyists.
Most Internet providers have treated Internet traffic equally. That's a principle known as "net neutrality".
The issue involves the transmission of data over a broadband.
Without Net Neutrality, cable and phone companies could carve the Internet into fast and slow lanes.
Net Neutrality is the Internet’s guiding principle. It preserves our right to communicate freely online.
ISPs could charge extra fees to the few content companies that could afford to pay for preferential treatment.
Net Neutrality means an Internet that enables and protects free speech.

Lobbyists must have strong communication skills and knowledge of the legislative process as well as the industry that they are representing.
If the government doesn't act soon, this open internet — and the "network neutrality" principles that sustain it — could be a thing of the past.
