In practice, the requirement is no difficulty at all.
We could legally spend up to 10% of our budget on lobbying.
Even if we did lobbying, we would never do that much of it.

However, what we actually do about these issues is not lobbying.
Rather, it is outreach to the public.  That 10% limit does not apply
to outreach to the public.
