A bill limiting lobbyists' activities in the Knesset passed its preliminary reading Wednesday.

The legislation, proposed by MK Adi Kol (Yesh Atid) expands the definition of lobbyist to include anyone trying to convince MKs to act or vote a certain way, and seeks to makes their work more transparent.

The bill passed with 35 in favor and none opposed.

"This is an important, significant step in regulating lobbyists' work in the Knesset," Kol said. "I hope we will continue a dialog in passing this bill."
