Lobbying occurs when someone—regardless of title—is paid to influence a City action on behalf of another person. To ensure the public is informed about significant levels of lobbying activity, City law requires those who qualify as lobbying entities to register with the Ethics Commission and disclose a variety of information, including their clients, the City actions they attempt to influence, the City agencies involved, and the amount of money spent in their efforts to influence City decision makers.
