Long Title:AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 29 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE REGISTRATION OF LOBBYISTS.
Synopsis:The Act generally requires lobbyists to disclose the bill, resolution, or regulation on which they are lobbying by making an electronic filing with the Public Integrity Commission within five business days of contact with a relevant public official. For budget appropriations bills and bond and capital improvements bills, the Act requires identification of the subject in the bill being lobbied.
The Act further requires that the Public Integrity Commission, in coordination with Legislative Council and with the assistance of the Government Information Center, make such reports available on the internet in a manner in which they can be easily reviewed by bill, resolution, regulation, lobbyist or employer, and that regular updates be distributed to members of the General Assembly.
Finally, the Act requires lobbyists to file registration forms registration and financial disclosure forms electronically. It also shortens the time frame for reporting updated lobbyist information to five business days, which will be consistent with the reporting period under the Act and reflects the ease of filing the updates electronically.
