Local Lawmakers in Colorado Consider Lobbying Ordinance
Local lawmakers are considering an ordinance requiring lobbyists working in Aurora to register and report expenditures in excess of $75.
At-large councilwoman Angela Lawson, who is also the Lobbyist Registration Program Manager for the secretary of state, first introduced the proposal to a city policy committee in October 2018.
If passed, lobbyists would be required to begin registering at the beginning of 2020.
City Council discussed the proposal during the council’s special study session on July 22.
The ordinance has not yet been brought forward for official action.
The date to move forward to a regular council meeting has not been set.
