Joint Legislative Ethics Committee

Office of the Ohio Legislative Inspector General


Those seeking to influence legislation, executive agency decisions, or investment decisions of the state’s retirement systems must comply with Ohio’s lobbying laws. All lobbyists and their employers (i.e. clients) must register with and submit tri-annual activity and expenditure reports to the OLIG. All registrations and reports are filed electronically through the Ohio Lobbying Activity Center (OLAC). In turn, OLAC serves as a database that allows the public to view and search these reports.
