Ohio Governor Signs Extends Expiration Dates for Licenses by State Agencies
Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signed House Bill 404 into law, extending expiration dates for licenses issued by state agencies due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lobbyist registrations set to expire at the end of 2020 will remain active until July 1, 2021.
Any lobbyist who does not plan to continue lobbying activity in 2021 must log in and terminate engagement in OLAC.
The new renewal registration window will open in late spring 2021.
All registered lobbyists will receive follow-up information regarding specific dates from JLEC.
This extension is limited to lobbying engagements registered prior to November 22, 2020.
New lobbyists submit registrations in the usual manner, within 10 days of engagement.
This extension does not affect the deadline for activity and expenditure reports required to be filed electronically in OLAC by Monday, February 1, 2021.
