San Jose Considering New Lobbyist Requirements
Mayor Sam Liccardo is proposing new lobbyist disclosure rules for the city of San Jose. The rules would require lobbyists to report lobbyist activity weekly in electronic form. Currently, the city of San Jose requires quarterly disclosures be filed on paper.
The new rules also would require lobbyists to specify how they are contacting city officials – in person, by phone, or by email.
The city council will consider the mayor’s proposals at its next meeting, scheduled for December 15, 2015.
