Legislative Agent (Lobbyist) Registration
The City of Columbus requires
all legislative agents (lobbyists) to register with the City Clerk. Under
section 2321.54 of the Columbus City Code, legislative agents must disclose
information related to their clients and the legislation or issues related to
their engagement by a client. They also must update their registration
three times a year or within ten (10) days following their initial engagement
by a client.
Filing Deadlines: January 31, May, 31, and September 30
The Columbus Lobbyist Registration provides greater
accountability for those agents hired to lobby City Hall, while protecting
citizens’ rights to meet with City officials at any time for any reason.
If you classify as a legislative agent, please register all required information and affiliations using the online registration form.
