Statement by Secretary of State Gorbea on Passage of Lobby Reform Bill

"Today, the Senate voted to approve the House version of the Lobby Reform Act (H.7388 Substitute A), which now will be sent to the Governor. When I first entered office, I identified the need for a comprehensive reform of the state's lobbying laws. This legislation is the result of our efforts to clarify, streamline and strengthen those laws. I thank House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello, Senate President M. Teresa Paiva-Weed along with bill sponsors Senators Lynch Prata, Goldin, and Lombardi, Representatives Jacquard, Williams, Ruggiero, and McEntee; and the full House and Senate for working with me to reinforce Rhode Island's commitment to transparency and effective government."

Secretary of State Nellie M. Gorbea
