Connecticut Legislature Passes Bill to Raise Lobbyist Registration Threshold
Senate Bill 850, now known as Public Act 15-15, creates an additional exception to the definition of expenditure, adds to who is not included in the definition of a lobbyist, and raises the threshold for lobbyist registration from $2,000 to $3,000.
After passing both chambers, the measure awaits the governor’s signature. If signed, the new provisions will be effective January 1, 2016.
