[Editor’s Note: According to the Internal Revenue Code, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporations are only allowed to lobby Congress 20% of the year. 501(c)(3) organizations are limited in the amount of lobbying in which they may engage and are prohibited from engaging in political campaign activity. Federal tax law permits lobbying by 501(c)(3) organizations, as long as lobbying is not a “substantial part” of an organization’s total activities. The CAP Congressional/Legislative Squadrons are year-round operational units made up of members of Congress, their staff, Legislative and Executive Branch officials and aviation professionals.]
