Lobbying Executive Branch Officials and Constitutional Officers

The Lobbyist Disclosure Law was changed in September 2007 to include more governmental officials that are covered under the definition of "lobbying." Lobbyists now have to report their lobbying activity that involves a constitutional officer, a member of the Governor's cabinet and staff, and an official in the executive branch as well as officials in the legislative branch (a member, member-elect, officer, employee of, and candidate for the Legislature) and the Governor. The Commission has provided written Guidance on Reporting Executive Branch Lobbying.

“Official in the executive branch” means an individual in a major policy-influencing position in a department or agency listed in
section 959 or in Title 5, Chapter 71 and the Governor’s cabinet and staff.

"Major policy-influencing position” means those positions listed in Title 5, chapter 71 and officers or employees of departments and agencies listed in section 959 and in Title 5, Chapter 71 who have policy development as a major function of their positions.


The following is a list executive branch officials covered under Executive Branch Lobbying (current as of 12/08):
