Louisiana Lobbyists Can Pay Registration Fees Online With Credit Cards
Lobbyists registering in Louisiana are now able to pay their registration fee online with credit cards. On December 1, the Lobbying Division of the Louisiana Ethics Administration Program announced this update for processing registrations for 2016.
If paying by credit card, a 2.5% convenience fee will be applied. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are accepted. Payments by checks, cashier check, and money orders are also still accepted. The registration fee must be paid within 20 days of electronically filing a lobbyist’s registration.
The effective date of the registration will be the date the registration fee is processed.
