Florida Senate Advances Lobbyist Disclosure Changes
A bill seeking to increase lobbyist disclosure advanced in committee in the Florida state senate. Senate Bill 686, if passed, will require lobbyists to report on a monthly basis the bills and amendments they are attempting to influence. This would include listing the specific bar code the legislature uses to track amendments.
The bill still has several hurdles to clear before reaching the Senate floor, including three more committees.
