All “lobbying” activities on behalf of the school district will be conducted under the direction of the Superintendent and/or School Board. For purposes of this procedure, “lobbying” means attempting to influence the passage or defeat of any legislation or the adoption or rejection of any rule, standard, rate, or other legislative enactment by any state agency.
The district will file a quarterly report (PDC Form L5) with the Public Disclosure Commission when “in person lobbying” exceeds four days or parts of days during any three-month period in aggregate for all employees at the district. In-person lobbying includes testifying at legislative committee hearings and state agency hearings on rules and regulations but does not include attendance merely to monitor or observe testimony and debate.
District funds will not be expended for dinners, entertainment or campaign contributions.
