Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin announced on Tuesday that he would work to limit lobbyists' actions in the Knesset.

Rivlin discussed with 11 out of 17 Knesset committee chairmen the need to establish clear regulations for lobbyists, so that information on how decisions are made in Knesset committees will be more transparent to the public.

The Knesset House Committee is currently working on an overhaul of all Knesset regulations, and changes to the chapter on ethics have been delayed due to disagreements between MKs.
