OLAC Tips: Expenditure Searches

Dating back to 2009, you can use the Ohio Lobbying Activity Center (“OLAC”) to quickly search lobbying expenditures!

With OLAC, you can search and cross-reference most information reported by lobbyists and their employers.  In particular, the Expenditures Search feature enables searches as broad as: “any expenditure provided by Employer XYZ,” or as specific as: “any meal or beverage provided by Lobbyist Doe during the May – August 2014 Reporting Period.”

Need to quickly organize or sort your search results?  No problem, you can export search results into a spreadsheet and organize the data as you choose.

To explore all search features, visit Lists and Searches in OLAC.  Try it out!
