CAL-ACCESS FAQs Section 2 Question 4

How do I find out whether an individual is a registered lobbyist?

  1. Go to the "Lobbying Activity" page. (You may also reach this site from the Secretary of State's Home Page - by clicking on "Lobbying Activity & Finance" under "Political Reform.")
  2. Click on "Individual Lobbyists" link. This will bring up the "Individual Lobbyists" for the current session. The lobbyists are listed alphabetically.
  3. To search for lobbyists back to the 1999-2000 legislative session, under "Legislative Session," click on "Historical." From the options offered, click on the session in which you are interested.
  4. If the individual cannot be located in this presentation or you believe the individual was a lobbyist in a year prior to the 1999-2000 session, contact the Political Reform Division.
