Guidance on New Kentucky Reporting Requirements and Forms
The Kentucky Executive Branch Ethics Commission passed an emergency regulation and provided guidance on a passed bill.
This bill passed amends registration requirements for executive agency lobbying.
Effective July 1, Senate Bill 157 requires the initial registration statement to include compensation paid to, or received by, each executive agency lobbyist, employer, and real party in interest as part of the engagement.
The emergency regulation provides the procedures for filing lobbyist forms and includes changes to the lobbyist forms.
In addition, electronic fillable forms and instructions will be posted on the commission’s website soon.
In the regular reminder notices, the new forms and revisions will also be addressed.
Each lobbyist, employer and real party in interest receives these notices.
All initial registration and updated registration statements must now be submitted using the 2020 revised forms.
Additionally, a credit card payment app will be available starting July 1.
The commission also extended the filing period deadline for the required updated registration filing forms and registration fee payment from July 31 to August 31 due to COVID-19.
