Saskatchewan Proposes Lobbyist Registration Legislation
The Saskatchewan government has introduced legislation requiring paid lobbyists to register with the province. The impetus for the legislation is public accountability for the actions of lobbyists.
The proposed law would cover people paid to lobby elected officials on behalf of organizations or groups. It includes a provision for electronic registration.
