SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This act shall shall be known and cited as the"Lobbyist Disclosure Campaign Fund Act". The legislative law is amended to require campaign contributions and compensation paid to family members of public officials by lobbyists to be included on each bi-monthly lobbying report as well as each semiannual report to the commission. Lobbyists would also be required to report the contact information for any public official with whom he or she has a business relationship.
