2016 State Lobbying and Gift Law Survey

March 2016

The Election Law & Government Ethics Practice updated its annual Survey of State Lobbying and Gift Laws for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. This year’s survey is available for the first time through an online portal that includes timely updates. It includes, among other things, the definition of lobbying, grassroots lobbying, procurement lobbying, lobbying registration and reporting, general gift rules, lobbyist gift rules, and lobbyist campaign finance restrictions.

To view a sample of the portal, which contains 2014 information for Illinois and North Dakota, click here. The username is wileydemo, and the password is demo123.

The full 2016 Survey and online portal is available now for purchase. Individual states are also available for purchase. For more information on the 2016 Lobbying and Gift Law Survey or to order, please contact Carol A. Laham at 202.719.7301 or
