Arizona Bill Removes Entertainment Exception for Lobbyists
Arizona Senator David Schapira has introduced a bill removing the lobbyists gift exception for entertainment and for some athletic events.
The Democratic Minority leader’s bill, SB 1068, amends the current law by removing the exception for expenditures of entertainment and athletic events provided to officials by lobbyists.
Sporting events would still be a permitted expenditure if the event is sponsored by a school district governing board, a community college district governing board, or any institution under the jurisdiction of the Arizona board of regents.
