Reminder: Federal Lobbying Compliance training

Submitted by Sue Peterson

Two additional Federal Lobbying Compliance trainings will be offered Nov. 1-2. This is the same training offered in September. If you attended one of those sessions, you do not need to come to this training.

Under the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995, Public Law 110-81 and the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act, Kansas State University — which employees an in-house lobbyist — is subject to federal disclosure rules.

In order to comply with the law, any Kansas State University employee intending to communicate on behalf of or advocate for the university with a member of Congress, federal government employee — Schedule C and above — and military personnel — pay grade 0-7 and above — needs to attend one of the following training sessions:

  • 3:30-4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, in Hale Library's Hemisphere Room.
  • 9–10 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2, in Hale Library's Hemisphere Room.

The training session will be conducted by Ed Watson, partner at Foulston Siefkin Law Firm.

Please direct any questions to Sue Peterson at skp@k-state.edu or 785-532-6227.
