Colorado Secretary of State Creates New Rules for Redistricting Commission Lobbyists
The Colorado Secretary of State temporarily adopted lobbyist rules 8 C.C.R. 1505-8 on March 1, defining and establishing new requirements for redistricting commission lobbyists.
The new rules define redistricting commission lobbyist as a person who is contracted or compensated to communicate directly or indirectly with a member of a redistricting commission for the purposes of aiding or influencing such redistricting commission or their staff. Additionally, the rules require those who are registered as professional lobbyists to electronically register as a redistricting commission lobbyist and disclose all clients that contract with or compensate them.
The secretary of state also issued a notice of rulemaking to consider permanent adoption of the temporary rules.
The virtual public rulemaking hearing is scheduled for April 19 at 3 p.m.
