What does this mean to you?

If you are a lobbyist, lobbyist principal, liaison or other lobbying-related filer, as of noon, on Thursday, June 28, 2018, you can no longer file registrations or lobbying expense reports with the Secretary of State. All lobbying related registrations and reports must then be filed with the State Board. All questions related to filing should also go to the State Board.

If you are a designated individual please contact the State Board to:
  • Do research regarding lobbyists and lobbyist principals,
  • Get information about the directory of lobbyists,
  • File a gift report.
If you want to file a lobbying related complaint or inquire about a previously filed lobbying complaint, you will need to contact the State Board.

If you are a member of the media and wish to do research or ask questions regarding lobbyists, lobbyist principals, and lobbying related matters, you will need to contact the State Board.

Important: Please keep in mind that as of noon, Thursday, June 28, the Department of the Secretary of State no longer accepts lobbying-related filings. Please save yourself some time: contact the State Board directly for all lobbying related matters.
