Sarasota, Florida Lobbying Law Proposed
A Sarasota commissioner has proposed an act to require lobbyist registration for any person hired for the purpose of lobbying.
The act is intended to diminish clandestine lobbying done in secret by private individuals.
This act will affect anyone paid to lobby the city on any matter and require them to disclose their client and the purpose of their lobbying.
The act will exempt those who are not compensated for lobbying activities or those lobbying on behalf of the community.
Finally, the act will establish a public database with a maintained list of lobbyists, their clients, and the subjects of their lobbying.
