Broward County Hospital System Launches Website for Lobbyist Registration
Broward Health, the county’s hospital system, has implemented its decade-old lobbyist registration policy through a new website. The website contains information about the policy, registration procedures, and expenditure reporting.
Lobbyists engaged to lobby the North Broward Hospital District, its Board of Commissioners, or its employees must register with the Vice President for Government Relations prior to engaging in lobbying. There is a registration fee of $40 for each client represented and registrations must be renewed by July 1 each year. Registered lobbyists must also file an annual statement of expenditures by July 30, covering July 1 of the prior year through June 30.
The policy also outlines requirements for lobbyist hired to represent the Hospital District before certain state, county, and local government units.
More information regarding lobbyist policies and procedures is available on Broward Health’s website at https://app.browardhealth.org/lobbyist.
