California Procurement Lobbying Bill Sent to Governor
Assembly Bill 1200 has been sent to California Gov. Jerry Brown. The bill revises the definition of lobbyist to include individuals attempting to influence state governmental procurement of $250,000 or more.
Legislators passed the bill despite criticism of the measure from the California Fair Political Practices Commission.
If Brown signs the bill, the new rules will go into effect January 1, 2017.
