FOURTH QUARTER 2009 REPORTS DUE
          
     All 2009 lobbying registrations automatically terminated on December 31, 2009. The Municipal Lobbying Ordinance requires that a fourth quarter report must be filed for any lobbyist, lobbying firm, or lobbyist employer which was registered during the quarter. Fourth quarter reports must be filed by Monday, February 1, 2010. (Since the usual filing deadline of January 31st falls on a Sunday, the deadline has been extended to the following day.) 

NEW LEFS PASSWORD RESET FUNCTION

    Have you ever sat down to file your quarter lobbying report only to discover that you had forgotten your log in password to the Lobbyist Electronic Filing System (LEFS)? Previously, you would have to call our office to get your password reset before you could log into the system to file your report. That worked fine if you were trying to file during regular business hours. However, in situations after hours or on the weekend, you would have to wait until the next business day to contact the City Ethics Commission to assist you.

     To eliminate such potential delays, the Ethics Commission has implemented a new utility that allows you to reset your password by email. Now, at the initial LEFS log-in screen (https://ethics.lacity.org/efs2003), you can click on a link and enter your user ID and email address in order to reset your password. The information you enter must exactly match what we have on file. You will then  receive email instructions on how to reset your password.

     If you have questions or need assistance with your filings, please contact our office at (213) 978-1960.
