Arizona Removes Notarization Requirement From Lobbying Forms
The Arizona Secretary of State sent out communication this week regarding updates to the lobbyist filing and registration process.
Senate Bill 1261, passed by the Legislature this year, removes all notarization requirements from lobbying forms.
Updated forms reflecting the elimination of notarization will be put on the state website.
Forms will also be sent to registered lobbyists in advance of the bill’s effective date on August 27, 2019.
The Arizona Secretary of State is also working to implement an online payment portal.
More information about the payment portal is forthcoming.
