A Call for Comments on Disclosure Forms

Posted December 2, 2008 at 2:47pm

The Senate and House disclosure offices are asking lobbyists to lodge their gripes regarding new disclosure forms by early next week, so any changes may be made by the Jan. 20 filing deadline.

The Secretary of the Senate and Clerk of the House recently asked for feedback on their Web sites, “in light of the thousands of new filers and the significant new disclosures required by the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act.” The act took effect at the beginning of 2007.

“Comments and suggestions should be directed to the Senate Office of Public Records and the House Legislative Resource Center in time for evaluation before the next reporting cycle,” according to the Senate’s Web site.
