ABM finds Congress preoccupied with Obama’s agenda

By Published on .

New York—American Business Media’s lobbying efforts have been hindered this year by Congress’ focus on health care reform and other legislation, according to Tom Carpenter, VP of Wexler & Walker, ABM’s lobbying firm.

Carpenter made that observation Tuesday afternoon during a panel session titled “Politics, Policy and Your Pocketbook” at ABM’s Executive Forum 2009. The two-day event concludes today.

David Straus, another panelist and a partner at Thompson Coburn, ABM’s law firm, reported that there will be no postal rate hike in 2010 but cautioned that dwindling mail volumes will likely lead to battles over periodical postage in the near future.

Other panelists warned that ABM faces future legislative battles over behavioral targeting in online advertising and protection of database, directories and other intellectual property.
