Lobbying and Legislative Organization The Effect of the Vote of Confidence Procedure

Morten Bennedsen and Sven E. Feldmann

Abstract: We analyze how the structure of organizational form of legislative institutions affects

interest groups ’incentives to lobby.Lobbying is modelled the strategic provision

of information by an interest group to a multi-person legislature.We show that

the effectiveness of lobbying lies in changing the viable policy coalitions.We show

in a multi-period policy framework that a distinguishing feature between the US

Congress and European parliamentary systems —the vote of confidence procedure —

can significantly change the incentives for interest group lobbying.
