Utah Passes Lobbying Bill Amending License Application, Registration Requirements
Utah lawmakers passed a lobbying transparency bill establishing requirements for foreign agents and amending the definition of lobbying.
House Bill 90 defines the term foreign agent and requires a foreign agent to register with the lieutenant governor.
Under the bill, a foreign agent must complete a foreign agent registration form, license application form, and wear an indicating name tag in at least 14-point type.
Additionally, the definition of lobbying includes influencing local action, such as an ordinance or purchasing decision, or education action, such as a nomination or appointment by an official or board.
The bill will become effective May 4.
