Lobbyists serve as information agents for both legislators and the organizations represented, including businesses, trade associations, labor groups, civic organizations, public interest groups, and governmental entities. Lobbyists either serve as witnesses or locate expert witnesses for hearings. They also develop background material and provide information to lawmakers.
Lobbyists are required to register with the
Government Ethics Commission and are guided by state laws, administrative rules, and House and Senate rules relating to lobbying.
