Seeks Informal Comment from Regulated Community and Public

The Joint Commission on Public Ethics (“Commission”) has released a staff proposal of revisions to the Comprehensive Lobbying Regulations and Source of Funding Regulations and is seeking informal comment from both the regulated community and the general public before beginning a formal rulemaking process.

As the Commission did when it first undertook the process of promulgating the original Comprehensive Lobbying and Source of Funding Regulations, staff is seeking feedback and input on proposed amendments to the regulations before it enters into the official SAPA rulemaking process. After a year of experience with the regulations being in effect, these revisions seek to provide clarification where needed, make substantive changes to key areas, and also make technical corrections.

After this informal period, and subsequent rulemaking, staff aims to implement revised regulations by January 1, 2021 and the beginning of the 2021-2022 Biennial Lobbying Period.

Written comments to the staff proposals are due on or before June 5, 2020, and should be directed to Carol Quinn, Deputy Director of Lobbying Guidance at [email protected].
