On December 31, 2015 ALL EXECUTIVE AGENCY* AND RETIREMENT SYSTEM LOBBYING ENGAGEMENTS expire in OLAC. Legislative lobbying engagements do not expire until the end of 2016.
JLEC routinely reviews and makes updates to section IV in the Executive Agency Registration (Categorical listing of offices of Elected Executive Officials, Departments or Executive Agencies to which the engagement relates). Please be sure to REVIEW and EDIT as necessary during the renewal process.
Lobbyists can begin renewing engagements in their OLAC accounts on December 15th.**
Registration Renewals no longer require the employer signature.
In order for renewed registrations to become active, the OLIG must receive the Invoice and filing fee ($25 per engagement) not later than February 10th for each 2016 engagement. To generate the invoice, click on the ‘Print Invoice’ button located at the top of each registration confirmation page.
The renewal option ends January 31, 2016. Registrations filed after this date will require a Signature Page signed by both the lobbyist and the employer along with the filing fee.
Note- the 2016 lobbying calendar is now available.
* “Executive Agency Lobbying” refers to those who lobby executive agencies and not to those employed in the agencies, as liaisons or in other legislative advocacy roles.
** Lobbyists should only renew engagements for entities they intend to lobby on behalf of in 2016.
