Pennsylvania Secretary of State Issues Guidance on Lobbyist Equity Disclosure Requirement
Pennsylvania lobbyists and lobbying firms are required to complete an annual equity disclosure report by October 7.
This year’s report covers the period of July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021.
Subsequent annual reports will be due July 30 of each year.
Each report must include how much equity a lobbyist or lobbying firm holds or has held in an affiliated principal for whom that lobbyist or lobbying firm has lobbied during the reporting period.
The amount of equity held can be represented by a dollar amount or by a percentage.
The state broadly defines equity as ownership in interest in property, especially in a business.
