Idaho Governor Signs Bill Amending Lobbying Law
On April 3, Gov. Brad Little signed a bill amending state lobbying laws.
Effective July 1, Senate Bill 1153 removes the lobbyist’s employer signature requirement from reports filed by lobbyists.
A designated contact is required upon registration for electronic notification.
Senate Bill 1153 also provides a definition for lobbyist’s client.
The client is the person on whose behalf the lobbyist is acting, directly or indirectly, as a contractor.
Additionally, the client is further defined as someone who compensates the lobbyist or lobbyist’s employer for acting as a lobbyist.
