Public Finance and Litigation Alert: Governor Patrick Signs Bill Delaying Implementation of Lobbying Law


Massachusetts Governor Deval L. Patrick today signed legislation that delays the effective date of sweeping lobbying law provisions that are part of the state’s new Ethics Reform package, a law that the Governor signed in July of this year. Governor Patrick’s signature comes two days after the Legislature enacted changes to postpone the law’s effective date to January 1, 2010, which coincides with the Secretary of State’s current annual and semi-annual lobbying registration and disclosure requirements.
