Lobby Law Unit

The City's Lobbying Law requires lobbyists to report their lobbying activities with more specificity; prohibits Campaign Finance Board matching funds for lobbyists' campaign contributions; prohibits lobbyists from offering gifts to public servants; creates an electronic filing system; requires lobbyists to disclose their fundraising and consulting activities; strengthens the City Clerk's enforcement powers; and increases penalties for violations of the law. The Law also requires the Department of Investigation to investigate “willful” violations of the law and to assist the City Clerk for the purpose of training personnel, who are responsible for the administration and enforcement of the law, on audit and investigative procedures.
