Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Lobbyist Registration Act. Expands the definition of lobbying to include communications with government employees and attempts to persuade local government officials. Pre-empts home rule authorities from defining the act of "lobbying" in a manner inconsistent with the State's definition. Prohibits family members of officials or State employees and persons with whom a legislator or State employee maintains a close economic relationship from lobbying for compensation. Provides that a violation of this prohibition is a Class A misdemeanor with a fine equal to 5 times the total compensation earned in violation of this Section.
