*A LOBBYIST is a person or organization, other than a New York State government employee acting in an official capacity, who appears for the purpose of influencing the adoption or rejection of proposed rules, regulations, rates, legislation, including the State budget or the specification or award of a State Procurement Contract. An "appearance" for lobbying purposes can be a personal visit, letter, telephone call, conversation at a meeting, or any other type of contact, but does not include "on the record" proceedings or hearings.
