slide1.jpg Lobbying registration in Philadelphia is on an annual, calendar-year basis. The Philadelphia Lobbying Information System (PLIS) will accept 2017 registrations beginning on January 3, 2017. The annual lobbying fee is $200. Lobbyists, lobbying firms or principals that registered in 2016 are not automatically required to renew their registration in 2017 until such time as the applicable registration thresholds in the Lobbying Code (Section 20-1204) and Regulation No. 9 have been met in 2017. Please call the Board of Ethics at 215-686-9450 or the PLIS Support Desk at 717-441-7440 if you need assistance.
