New Hampshire Attorney General Issues Guidance for In-House Lobbyists
The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office issued guidance related to the registration of part-time in-house lobbyists.
The office clarified that in-house employees of non-lobbying organizations must register as a lobbyist so long as they engage in some lobbying activities on behalf of their employer.
These employees will also need to report the portion of their wages attributed to the time they and any support staff spend on lobbying activities.
Additionally, the employee is required to disclose any expenditures made by their employer in connection with the employee’s lobbying activities.
Employees meeting these criteria will need to file Addendum A, the state’s lobbying fees and expenses form, prior to engaging in lobbying activities.
