Section 7 Termination of retainer, employment or designation

Regulation of Lobbying Act 1040/81 (RLA)

Upon the termination of a lobbyist's retainer, employment or designation, such lobbyist and the client on whose behalf such service has been rendered shall both give written notice to the commission within thirty days after the lobbyist ceases the activity that required such lobbyist to file a statement of registration; however, such lobbyist shall nevertheless comply with the reporting requirements for the last periodic reporting period up to the date such activity has ceased as required by this act and both such parties shall each file the annual report required by section nine of this act. The commission shall enter notice of such termination in the appropriate monthly registration docket required by section six of this act.

  * NB Chapter 2 of the laws of 1999 repealed, effective January 1, 2000, the lobbying act as enacted by section 1 of chapter 1040 of the laws of 1981. A new lobbying act was enacted as Article 1-A of the legislative law.

  Section 5 of such chapter 2 transfers all of the functions and powers of the New York temporary state commission on lobbying created by such chapter 1040 to the New York temporary state commission on lobbying created by Article 1-A of the legislative law with respect to receiving the periodic and annual reports required to be filed pursuant to sections 8, 9 and 10 of the repealed chapter 1040. Also, pursuant to section 7 of such chapter 2, any action or proceeding commenced prior to January 1, 2000 under the old lobbying act shall be continued, prosecuted and defended pursuant to the old lobbying act as in effect on December 31, 1999.

  Because of these provisions, the Commission will continue to set out the full text of the repealed lobbying act through December 31, 2000 in order that lobbyists who were subject to the former lobbying act may be adequately apprised of the responsibilities and obligations imposed upon them as continued by sections 5 and 7 of chapter 2 of the laws of 1999.
