The 2021 legislative sessions are right around the corner, and as you create your state government affairs program, be sure to review lobbying registration requirements and deadlines.
In some states, your current registration will cover all or part of 2021. However, 36 states require registration for 2021, meaning you must re-register to be in compliance.
In three states, registration continues until terminated. There is only one state (Nevada) where registration will not be required for 2021 .
Additionally, 34 municipalities require registration for 2021.
If you want your state government affairs program to hit the ground running in January, it is imperative to review lobbying registration requirements and deadlines now. In some states, your 2020 registration may carry over and cover some or part of 2021. However, in a majority of states — 36 of them— you are required to register for 2021 to be in compliance. In nine states, current registration covers all or part of 2021. In three states (Delaware, Michigan, and Minnesota), registration continues until explicitly terminated. Only one state (Nevada) will not require registration for 2021 because an in-person session is not scheduled at this time. Check out the map below to see where 2021 registration is required.
