Attendees of the March 13th & March 20th, 2015, Roundtable Discussions

Topics Discussed:

The March 13th and 20th roundtables in Albany and New York City focused on Commission's website and online lobbying filing system, both of which are expected to be rebuilt in the near future. The main issues discussed were uniformity in reporting data and creating a more streamlined filing process. Attendees at both discussions also outlined suggestions for an improved website, including online search capabilities as well as improved browser compatibility for the lobbying filing system. The sessions included representatives of lobbyists, clients, non-profit organizations, state agencies, and good government advocates, and the Commission looks to incorporate the comments the attendees provided in the development process.
