Enrolled Act 1222 changes regulations for registration and reporting
Governor Mike Pence has signed a bill to change legislative lobbying regulations. Enrolled Act 1222 expands the definition of lobbying to include communications with any employee of the legislative branch and requires lobbyists to file registration statements and activity reports electronically.
The bill also increases the annual lobbyist registration fee from $100 to $200 and makes the lobbyist registration year match the current lobbyist reporting periods. Lobbyist registration statements issued for 2013 will expire November 1, 2013.
Most of the bill’s provisions become effective July 1, 2013.
