Louisville, KY Enacts New Lobbying Law
Louisville Metro Council has approved a new lobbying ordinance requiring anyone making “direct communication with any Metro Officer or the staff of a Metro Officer for the purpose of influencing official decisions or official actions” and their employers register with the Ethics Commission within seven days of qualifying as a lobbyist, although several exemptions exist. Lobbyists and their employers who regularly make contacts must also file periodic spending statements and a $50 gift limit has been established. While much of the ordinance takes immediate effect, several portions do not kick in until early next year.
