Missouri House Bill Would Remove Lobbyist Registration Exemption for Certain Union Workers
Rep. Courtney Allen Curtis introduced a bill recently to amend Missouri lobbying law. Current law exempts union workers from lobbying registration unless their job is specifically to lobby. The proposed legislation would remove the exemption.
While comparing the bill to other recent ethics proposals, Curtis told a House committee it is wrong to delineate special rules for special groups.
Nobody testified in favor of the bill.
