Lobbying Amnesty Program

During 2016, the Commission offered an opportunity for certain firms, organizations, and people who should have previously filed as lobbyists or clients of lobbyists to do so without facing late fees or civil penalties. Running through September 30, 2016, the amnesty and compliance program was designed to encourage non-filing lobbyists and clients of lobbyists to comply with the Lobbying Act and disclose information about their lobbying activities.

The program was available to any lobbyist or client of a lobbyist who was required to file Lobbying Act reports, but never did, at any time on or after December 10, 2006; who had never been contacted by JCOPE for failing to comply with filing requirements; and who had never been the subject of a criminal proceeding for a Lobbying Act violation.
