Chapter 1 of the Laws of 2005, as amended by Chapter 596 of the Laws of 2005 (collectively referred to as the “Lobbying Law”), makes major changes to the Legislative Law and State Finance Law, which regulate lobbying on government procurements. It creates two new sections in the State Finance Law that restrict contacts, require disclosure of certain contacts, and address the responsibility of bidders and proposers, during the procurement process. These sections are effective as of January 1, 2006.
