CLERK OF THE LEGISLATURE LOBBYIST AND PRINCIPAL REPORT DEADLINES

  • Lobbyist registrations for 2016 will expire December 31, 2016 and the legislative session will begin January 4, 2017. A lobbyist may renew their registration online for one or more principals by filling out the Renewal Form A-R. Form A-R must be completed online and payment received by December 31, 2016, otherwise you will need to use a Form A. (Note that since December 31st falls on Saturday and if you are paying by check for your renewal, the check needs to be received before 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 30th in order to be processed on time.)
  • All registrations and reports are required to be submitted electronically using the online lobby registration and reporting system pursuant to the mandatory provisions passed in 2012 and that took effect on January 1, 2015. Paper forms cannot be accepted.
  • To access the online registration and reporting system, use a web browser and navigate to www.nebraskalegislature.gov. Click on “For Lobbyists” on the left side and select “Submit Lobbyist and Principal Reports”. There are instructions and a tutorial available if needed.
  • You will use your same username and password to access your account. Do not create a new lobby account if you have already done so in the past. If you have forgotten your password or username, you can request these under the login box. The principal will also use their same username and password as they have in the past. If the principal is new, a new account will need to be created.
  • Registration fees can be paid online using a credit card. Checks are also an acceptable form of payment, but will need to be processed by the Clerk's Office. Checks should be made payable to the State of Nebraska. Complete and submit your registration online and send your check to the address below. When paying by check, please note that your registration will become effective on the date in which both the registration is completed online and the check is received - whichever is later.

The following is a list of deadlines for reports required to be submitted by lobbyists and principals.
