South Carolina Governor Proposes Registration Requirements for Local Lobbyists
Gov. Henry McMaster released a budget proposal with a provision to expand state lobbying laws to cover local lobbying of county, city, and town councils.
The proposal would also double the current lobbyist registration fee from $100 to $200.
The fee increase would allow the State Ethics Commission to strengthen its investigative and enforcement activities.
