The LD-203 requires registrants and lobbyists to disclose a variety of payments made for the purpose of honoring and recognizing covered officials. Guidance issued by the House and Senate includes some very helpful examples.
Payments that need to be disclosed fall in four different categories.
- The cost of an event to honor or recognize a covered legislative branch official or covered executive branch official;
- Payments to an entity that is named for a covered legislative branch official, or to a person or entity in recognition of such official;
- Payments to an entity established, financed, maintained, or controlled by a covered legislative branch official or covered executive branch official, or an entity designated by such official; or
- The costs of a meeting, retreat, conference, or other similar event held by, or in the name of, one or more covered legislative branch officials or covered executive branch officials.
