OMB Requests Public Comment on Disclosure of Lobbying Activities Form
OMB has recently requested public comment on its proposed renewal without change of Standard Form LLL (Disclosure of Lobbying Activities). The request was published in the June 19, 2000 Federal Register (65 Fed. Reg. 38005) and comments are due to the agency by August 18, 2000.
Completion of this form is statutorily required of persons engaged in lobbying who request or receive a federal contract, grant, cooperative agreement, loan or federal commitment to insure or guarantee a loan. Specifically, reporting is required by section 319 of the FY 1999 Department of the Interior and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (P.L. 101-65), 31 U.S.C. 1352, as amended by the lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995 (P.L. 104-65). Reporting is required even though the lobbying is done with non-federal funds.
CRE believes that the disclosure of lobbying activities promotes transparency and good government, particularly because of the potential nexus between receipt of agency funds and issue advocacy. Interested parties are encouraged to make their views known to OMB on SF-LL by the deadline of August 18, 2000. Comments may be submitted to the agency in the following manner:
