Go to https://egov.delaware.gov/lobs/ and select ‘Lobbyist.’ You will need to have a delaware.gov username and password. If you do not have one, simply follow the instructions for the New User Registration. Once you have a username and password, you may log into the Lobbyist area and complete the registration. For more detailed instructions, go to the: How to Become a Lobbyist page.
We do not have access to your password. You can re-set your delaware.gov password if you cannot remember it. There is a ‘Forgot My Password’ link just to the right of the login box. Once you click that link a re-set email will be sent to the email address listed in your profile
No, you may select the checkbox marked ‘indefinite’ instead of selecting an end date. If you enter an end date, but later wish to extend or change the selection to ‘indefinite,’ you may do so. The form is valid until you ‘terminate’ your employer.
If you have not filed your expense report by the 21st of the month following the calendar quarter, your account will lock and late fees will begin to accrue. The late fee for the first day of delinquency is $25 and increases by $10 per day for each subsequent day to a maximum of $100. In order to log in to your account, you will need to pay the late fee with a credit card. PIRS accepts VISA and MasterCard. The Commission does make exceptions for exigent circumstances such as hospitalization, etc. If you want to request a waiver of the late fee you must call the office BEFORE you enter your credit card information. The best way to avoid late fees is to file your report on time.
Pursuant to 29 Del. C. § 5836 all lobbyists must report all lobbying activity on legislation and administrative regulations within 5 days of the lobbying contact or within 5 days after the legislation has been introduced in the General Assembly or within 5 days after the administrative regulation has been adopted. You do not have to report whether you lobbied for or against legislation or administrative regulation.
Once you have logged in, go to the ‘Manage’ section click the link to ‘My Lobbying Activity’. Next, choose the employer for which you are lobbying and click ‘Manage Activity’. From there, follow the instructions on the page to select the correct legislative or administrative action.
The list is populated by data stored in the State of Delaware Legislative Information System and is updated every 15 minutes. If you cannot find your bill, it could be a timing issue and we suggest you check back in a few minutes. If you continue to be unable to find it, contact us at 739-2399.
No. Legislative Hall is a State building and is open to the public. Wearing a lobbyist ID badge simply means you do not have to sign into the Visitors Log when you enter the building. You will be required, along with everyone else, to pass through the security screening area.
If you have no expenses to report, go into ‘Manage My Employers’ and terminate all of your employers. This will automatically make your account inactive. If you have expenses to report, you may not terminate your employers until after the quarterly expense report is due. See filing schedule.
No! Failure to terminate your employers will keep your status as ‘active’. If you are listed as ‘active’ you are required to file all expense reports as they become due. If you do not file your report, your account will accrue late fees.
Your profile remains in the system, do not create a new one. If you wish to actively lobby again, you will need to log in (using the same delaware.gov username and password) and add an employer. At that point, you will become active (if all previous reports have been filed).
