    Part 943 - Comprehensive Lobbying Regulations (Proposed) - clean version

    The Commission has submitted Notices of Proposed Rulemaking for Part 943 (a set of comprehensive lobbying regulations).  If adopted, Part 943 will mark the first time that existing guidelines and decades of advisory opinions will be compiled in one place in New York. It will provide a “one-stop shop” for information about the rules and requirements associated with lobbying in New York. Designed to close loopholes that have evolved over time, the regulations will capture more and better information about the targets of lobbying activities and the real clients of lobbyists. 

    The regulations take into account the use of ever-changing technology in conducting lobbying campaigns. They also streamline reporting requirements, providing more clarity about the requirements related to consultants, grassroots lobbying, sources of funding, and the use of new media for lobbying purposes.
