Lobbying Ordinance Voted Down in Memphis
Memphis City Council voted against adopting an ordinance requiring those lobbying the council to register with the city and name their clients.
The ordinance would have required lobbyists to register annually and pay a registration fee of $50.
The ordinance would have also subjected lobbyists to similar reporting requirements of those lobbying the Tennessee General Assembly and the Metro Nashville Council.
