Alabama Legislators Introduce Bill Exempting Economic Development Professionals from Lobbyist Registration
The Alabama House has introduced a bill to revive an expired exemption to lobbyist registration.
House Bill 289, similar to last year’s House Bill 317, will exempt economic development professionals from registering as a lobbyist.
Under the new bill, the economic development professional lobbyist registration exemption does not apply if a person seeks incentives or funds through legislative action outside of incentives already available.
If passed, the law will not contain an expiration date like last year’s bill and will be effective immediately.
