- Be sure to stay on top of lobbying compliance deadlines, even if you’re working remotely — these rules still apply.
- Twenty-two states have disclosure deadlines in June and one state (North Dakota) has annual lobbying registration renewals this month, meaning you’re required to renew if you plan to continue lobbying.
With the coronavirus pandemic impacting how and where government affairs professionals do business, it’s important to ensure you’re still keeping track of filing and reporting deadlines for lobbying compliance. Over the next month, 22 states have periodic disclosure requirements — in other words, if you’re already registered in one of these states and are required to file disclosure reports, you must do so in June. While many states have suspended their legislative sessions due to COVID-19, these rules still apply if you’re contacting state officials, even remotely. Additionally, North Dakota has annual lobbying registration renewals in June, meaning you’re required to renew if you plan to continue lobbying there.
