Ohio Lobbyists Must Pay 2021 Registration Fees Electronically
The Ohio Joint Legislative Ethics Committee published a reminder they will not accept cash, money orders, or physical checks for payment of 2021 lobbying registration fees.
The online payment portal, accessible via the lobbyist’s OLAC account was established in 2019.
Registrations fees for 2021 must be paid electronically by VISA, MasterCard, or ACH.
Lobbyists may begin renewing registrations for legislative, executive, and retirement system engagements in OLAC on December 1.
The renewal option closes January 15, 2021.
Any lobbyist who does not complete the renewal process by January 15 must file a new initial registration statement.
The registration statement requires a signature page.
