By now, we all know that President Bush signed the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act of 2007 (“HLOGA”) into law last September. What many of us don’t know is how to remain in compliance with these new rules and requirements. Given the expanded reach of HLOGA’s enhanced civil, and even criminal penalty provisions, recognizing compliance issues and developing a robust strategy is more important than ever.
Under HLOGA, among the many changes, lobbying reports now must be filed quarterly, rather than semiannually. With the April 20 Lobbying Disclosure Act reporting deadline only a few weeks away, it is increasingly important that any confusion about the new reporting process is avoided.
Join Kelley Drye Partner David E. Frulla as he identifies HLOGA reporting and compliance strategies. He will also discuss other HLOGA-based changes to gift and travel rules, in light of the newest congressional guidance.
Topics of discussion will include:
HLOGA reporting and certification
Training to support certifications
- Gift rules
- Rules for national party convention events
- Travel sponsorship requirements
Who Should Attend?
The seminar is free of charge and will be geared to any individual or organization that employs or retains registered lobbyists and is involved in the political process.
