The Suffolk County Legislature passed a resolution on May 12, 2015, to strengthen county lobbying law. Resolution 356 amends the definition of lobbying to include every person or organization retained, employed, or designated by any client to engage in lobbying before the county.
The ordinance also changes the administering body of lobbying regulations to the Clerk of the Legislature.
The resolution becomes effective upon approval by the County Executive; such approval is expected as early as the end of June.
