What are the registration fees for a lobbyist?
Registration fees for lobbyists are $300 annually plus $10 for every additional client added. Additionally $20 is charged for each lobbyist badge issued. Previously lobbyist fees were not charged due to a federal injunction preventing Georgia from charging lobbyist fees on a discriminatory basis. The Georgia statute was amended to remove the language which caused the policy concerns and the Commission will once again charge a lobbyist registration fee.
