Each registered expenditure lobbyist must file monthly reports with the Ethics Commission by the fifteenth day of the month following the calendar month covered by the report. For example, a report covering activity in the month of February must be filed by March 15. Deadlines falling on a weekend or holiday are extended to the next business day. The monthly disclosures are different from the registration requirements.
How to File
An expenditure lobbyist must file the monthly reports with the Ethics Commission by sending a PDF copy of the signed forms to the Commission’s email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). The Ethics Commission will also accept paper copies of this form delivered (e.g. by mail) directly to the Commission’s office. Forms delivered by mail must be postmarked by the due date to be timely filed.
If you are filing an amendment to a previously-filed quarterly report, check the appropriate box on SFEC Form 2110B and indicate the covered reporting period. Any amendments to information contained in the filer’s registration statement should be made by filing an amended SFEC Form 2110A with the Commission.
A registered expenditure lobbyist may terminate registration and monthly reporting obligations by filing a final monthly SFEC Form 2110B and checking the appropriate box to indicate that the report is a termination statement. An expenditure lobbyist can only terminate after it ceases all expenditure lobbyist activity. The Ethics Commission will automatically terminate the registration of an expenditure lobbyist that fails to pay the annual registration fee by February 1.
