Illinois Lobbyist Registration Delayed Until January 6
The Office of the Secretary of State released a notice on December 17 that registration of lobbyists and lobbying entities will be delayed until January 6, 2020.
The delay is due to the programming required to implement the registration changes required by Senate Bill 1639, which passed during the veto session in November.
Senate Bill 1639 requires lobbying entities to report if they are registered or expect to be required to register to lobby a unit of local government.
Additionally, the lobbying entity must disclose the name of the unit of local government.
