Section 6: Quarterly Reporting of Lobbying Activities
This section has been modified to accentuate that filers need to list a new lobbyist’s previous covered executive or legislative branch positions held within twenty (20) years of first acting as a lobbyist for a client. Once a filer has met the previously described statutory requirement for listing a new lobbyist’s previous covered position(s), then the filer does not have to list those positions again for subsequent reports concerning the same client. If a Registrant lists that lobbyist for the first time on a report/registration regarding a different client, then the Registrant must list that lobbyist’s previous covered positions held within twenty (20) years of first acting as a lobbyist for the new client.
Section 7: Semiannual Reporting of Certain Contributions
This section has been modified to stress that both registrants and lobbyists must file a semiannual report on Form LD-203 by July 30 and January 30 (or on the next business day should either day occur on a weekend or holiday) for each semiannual period in which a registrant or lobbyist remains active (and regardless of whether they do or do not make reportable contributions).
