WASHINGTON, May 31 (UPI) -- The U.S. Department of Justice has made a preliminary version of its foreign lobbyist database public for comment and suggestions.

The congressional newspaper The Hill reported that the database can be found at the Department of Justice's Web site. "It is undergoing final testing," said spokesman Dean Boyd.

The records used in the database were reportedly collected and compiled under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, which keeps track of lobbying and public relations efforts by foreign governments and politicians.

The incomplete database, which can be found at www.usdoj.gov, is already linked to numerous documents, including contracts between lobbyists and foreign governments and reports listing contacts between advocates and policymakers.
