Training certification is now required on lobbyist registrations
The Ethics Commission has issued an informal memorandum regarding a new training certification requirement for lobbyist registration.
Beginning September 19, 2013, Part C of the registration form will require the lobbyist to certify he or she has completed the required training in the last two-year period or will complete the training prior to being a regulated lobbyist for two years.
The next live training is scheduled for October 21, 2013. Lobbyists can verify their training status and complete the training online by accessing their account at https://lobby.ethics.state.md.us.
