The bill requires a lobbyist to report expenditures by a client for grassroots lobbying if those expenditures exceed $2,000 in a month. This amendment, which is the majority report of the committee, clarifies that a lobbyist must report on grassroots lobbying if the lobbyist's client either made or incurred expenditures in excess of $2,000 during a month for the purposes of grassroots lobbying. As amended, the grassroots lobbying reporting threshold for lobbyists will match the grassroots lobbying reporting threshold established in the bill for persons who have not engaged a lobbyist. The amendment also clarifies that the $2,000 threshold does not apply to the employer's regular employees.
