January - June, 2011
The public disclosure commission must amend its public agency lobbying (L-5) form to accommodate a new electronic filing process. The electronic filing application will improve the public's access to public agency lobbying data and make it easier and quicker for public agencies to report lobbying activity. The commission anticipates no other rule making during the first half of the year unless required by 2011 legislation.
Topic: Forms for report of legislative activity by public agencies.
Status: The preproposal statement will be filed with the code reviser in February 2011 giving notice that the commission is considering possible changes to its lobbying by state and local government agencies report to include the number of hours each person lobbied and what percentage of an FTE the person works.
Statutory Authority: RCW 42.17.370(1).
Statute Being Implemented: RCW 42.17.190.
WAC Cite: WAC 390-20-120 Forms for report of legislative activity by public agencies.
