Pennsylvania Governor Signs Lobbying Bill
Gov. Tom Wolf signed House Bill 1175 into law, amending filing requirements and penalties for lobbyists.
The new law requires electronic filing of lobbying disclosures and increases the monetary penalties assessed for late reports.
Fines between $50 and $200 per day, depending on the number of days late, can now be levied and the maximum penalty increases from $2,000 to $4,000.
These new penalties take effect immediately and the electronic filing requirement takes effect in 60 days.
